Maple Pear Pie Ice Cream

It's still my ice cream year of study so why not try out some maple pear pie ice cream as well! The maple and pears are a beautiful accent to the vanilla cream ice cream! So many wonderful flavors in each bite!
It's still 2010. I. Have. To. Make. Ice. Cream.

I just have to. Each year there is that goal I make, to make ice cream one a week. To have fifty-two ice cream recipes at the end of the year that I love, to try tons of new ice creams, and to make ice cream in fun and inventive ways. I've been very successful but the weather is getting cold and I am still down! By nearly 22 posts! AH!

Here is a simple post. I took some of the maple pear pies I made a few days ago and put a few of them into vanilla cream ice cream. WONDERFUL! The problem is not eating all the pie before making the ice cream. Not. Doable. At. All.

I hope you love one of my last ditch efforts at meeting my ice cream goal! Hopefully I can make it and pump out another 22 ice cream posts by December 31! I can do it!

Maple Pear Pie Ice Cream

*if you made the maple pear pies from the previous post, then just use two of those and skip straight to making ice cream!

1 pears, peeled, cored, and chopped
1/6 cup pure maple syrup
2 tsp. arrowroot powder, corn starch, or flour
pinch kosher salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinch tsp freshly ground nutmeg
 1/2 T. unsalted butter, cut into 2 peices
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup whole milk
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat the oven to 425.  Combine all the pie filling ingredients except the butter in a large bowl. Divide amongst 2 ramekins, topping each with a piece of butter.  Bake until bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Allow the cobbler to cool in the refrigerator as you make the ice cream. 

In a stand mixer combine the eggs and sugar. Beat for one minute until light and fluffy. Gently mix in the cream, milk and vanilla. Do not whip!

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker. When the ice cream is almost ready, pour in the cooled maple pear pie. Allow the ice cream to churn until finished and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
