I started making my own ice cream a few years ago and nothing beats it for a number of reasons… it tastes better, you know exactly what is and isn’t in it, it’s a lot cheaper to make and it is so easy! I made this cinnamon ice cream to go along with the apple pie that I made last weekend and it was the PERFECT combination. I had some left over so one night this week I made caramel sauce, hollowed out some apples and served the ice cream in them with the sauce and walnuts on top (pictured to the left here)… they were incredible! A lot of people are intimidated by the thought of making their own ice cream but trust me, it couldn’t be any easier. You don’t need a fancy ice cream machine either… I know department stores sell them from $90 ranging all the way to $450, but I gotta tell you… I have a Hamilton Beach one that cost me $25 and it gets the job done just fine!
