As the days shorten and the shadows lengthen, nothing puts me in the fall spirit like apples: apple pie, apple cider, and—of course—apple ice cream! I made up some sweet, creamy caramel, then simmered apples in spiced cider to create caramel apple pie in ice cream form.
Note: I strained out the apple pieces before churning the ice cream because I was afraid they would turn icy when frozen. I stirred the cooked apples into some reserved caramel to make the perfect ice cream topping and/or pie filling.
Bring on the cool mornings, crisp nights, and colorful leaves of autumn!
