Instructions

Cheddar Ice Cream:

  1. Warm cream and milk in a heavy, large saucepan over medium-low heat to 175°F; stir in sugar until dissolved. Add vanilla bean seeds.
  2. Whisk 1/3 cup of hot cream mixture into egg yolks in a bowl. Return all to saucepan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches 160°F and is just thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, about 10-15 minutes. (Do not boil.) Remove from the heat.
  3. Add the cheddar, vanilla and salt; stir until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour custard through a fine-mesh strainer into a large bowl. Place bowl in a larger bowl filled with ice water. Stir until custard has cooled to room temperature, about 2-4 minutes. Remove from the ice water. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Pie Crust:

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll pie pastry on prepared baking sheet. Combine egg and water; brush egg wash on pastry. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack. Break crust into small pieces; set aside.

Caramel Apples:

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar until dissolved. Add the apples, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Cook and stir until apples are crisp-tender, about 8-10 minutes. Combine cornstarch and lemon juice in a small bowl until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to skillet. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes longer or until caramel has thickened. Remove from the heat. Transfer apple mixture to a bowl. Cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Pour custard into an ice cream maker, two-thirds full. Freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Refrigerate any remaining custard until ready to freeze.
  3. Transfer ice cream to a large bowl. Fold in pie crust pieces and apple mixture. Spoon ice cream into freezer containers. Freeze for least 4 hours before serving. Repeat with any remaining custard.

Recipe Tips

For best results, completely cover custard when pressing the plastic wrap onto the surface to prevent skin from forming.| The ice cream will keep in freezer up to 1 week.| Freshly ground nutmeg and squeezed lemon juice lends a nice burst of flavor to the sautéed apples.
