I’m in a bit of a conundrum. You see, my heart is longing for the end of summer and the start of fall, but I’m not ready to give up ice cream (the most quintessential summer dessert) yet. Sure, there will still be plenty of warm days after the official start of fall, but ice cream just seems like it belongs in the summer months.
So, I did the only logical thing, and made an ice cream that just screams “fall!” This Cinnamon Vanilla Ice Cream is the best of both worlds – the perfect blend of summer and fall. It kind of makes me want to break all the rules and serve this as a dessert on Thanksgiving. It’s such a rich, creamy, cinnamon-y treat, and I bet it would pair nicely with pumpkin pie. Yeah, I hope my family is ready for this come November.
To make this, I used the vanilla ice cream base from this Golden Cookies and Cream Ice Cream, and then added in a bunch of cinnamon – so easy!
Makes about 1 quart
3 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise
3/4 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
What’s your all-time favorite ice cream flavor?
