Dinner & A Movie On Demand: Apple Pie Ice Cream & AMERICAN REUNION

Stats prove comedies are the most popular genre of Movies On Demand (MOD). And when is the best time to watch them? In the evening over dinner. With that in mind, On Demand Weekly presents Dinner & A Movie On Demand, a new column to help our readers enjoy watching movies at home even more. Popular food blogger Jaymee Sire (E is for Eat)  will whip up a new recipe inspired by a specific movie.

Baseball, Apple Pie and Movie On Demand: In honor of the American Pastime All Star Game tonight and the VOD release of AMERICAN REUNION Jaymee has created an Apple Pie Ice Cream recipe. Enjoy!

 

 

Who could forget the infamous “apple pie” scene in the original AMERICAN PIE? (Actually, I bet some people wish they could forget). Either way, it became forever burned into our memories and synonymous with this popular franchise. Now the gang is getting back together for an AMERICAN REUNION, available On Demand starting today.

 

Enter the WANDERLUST Sweepstakes...

First up…the star of the show: apples! Peel and core them and slice or chop them up. Throw them into a saucepan with 1 tablespoon of water, a cinnamon stick and the sugar. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until apples become very soft (about 15-20 minutes). Remove the cinnamon stick and mash until it has the consistency of chunky apple sauce. Set aside.

 


Next, you’ll need to make a custard. Although you can totally make delicious ice cream without a custard, it definitely adds to the creamy and decadent flavor of this dessert. To do that, heat either half and half or cream on the stove until very warm. Whisk egg yolks in a separate bowl and pour in about ½ cup of the warmed cream. (This helps “temper” the eggs so they don’t scramble). Return the egg mixture to the pan with the rest of the cream and cook, stirring constantly until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Stir in vanilla and transfer to a separate container. Stir in apple sugar mixture and store in an airtight container several hours or overnight. (It needs to be completely chilled!)

 


 When you’re ready to make the ice cream, freeze it according to the manufacturers’ instructions. During the last 5 minutes, add the “crust.” I used half of a crushed gluten free ginger cookie, but you could use graham cracker crumbs or oatmeal cookie crumbs or whatever you like best! If you like your ice cream a little softer, you can eat right away. Otherwise, store in an airtight container for a couple hours.

 

 

From there, it’s Lights, Camera, Action! Sit back and relax while you enjoy this hilarious comedy with a homemade bowl of apple pie ice cream!

 


Apple Pie Ice Cream:


• 2 large apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
• 1 tablespoon water
• 1 cinnamon stick
• ¾ to 1 cup of sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
• 2 cups half and half or heavy cream (depending on how creamy you like it)
• 3 egg yolks, beaten
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• cookie crumbs (ginger cookies, oatmeal cookies, or graham crackers)
• additional cookies, for garnish

1) Place prepared apples into a saucepan with 1 tablespoon of water, a cinnamon stick and the sugar. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until apples become very soft (about 15-20 minutes). Remove the cinnamon stick and mash until it has the consistency of chunky apple sauce. Set aside.

 

2) Heat either half and half or cream on the stove until very warm. Whisk egg yolks in a separate bowl and pour in about ½ cup of the warmed cream. (This helps “temper” the eggs so they don’t scramble). Return the egg mixture to the pan with the rest of the cream and cook, stirring constantly until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.

 

3) Stir in vanilla and transfer to a separate container. Stir in apple sugar mixture and store in an airtight container several hours or overnight. (It needs to be completely chilled!)

 

4) Freeze according to the manufacturers’ instructions. During the last 5 minutes, add the cookie crumbs. Serve immediately or freeze for a couple more hours until it reaches desired consistency. Garnish with an additional cookie and serve!
