A couple weeks ago I had my first taste of Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. I was hooked. I needed to find a recipe that I could make at home so I could enjoy it at my leisure. Probably not the best move if you’re watching your waistline, but everything is okay in moderation, right?
As I’ve mentioned before, pumpkin pie is best served with vanilla ice cream. Well, in my humble opinion anyway. So this dessert was clearly a no-brainer for me to feature. This ice cream is creamy, rich and decadent! It literally tastes like pumpkin pie. Absolutely delicious and perfect for holding onto the last bits of summer but embracing autumn flavours.
I realize that the spicy and savory taste of pumpkin is typically reserved for autumn when the weather becomes slightly cooler and you need something warm to pick you up – not when it’s +40 celsius with the humidity in August. As I mentioned in my last post, this is week two of Claudia being on vacation. This recipe is her most favourite that I bake and she requests it often. These scones are dense and almost exactly like the pumpkin scones you will find at your neighbourhood Starbucks. I was given this recipe from a friend of mine a few years ago. I’m actually not entirely sure where she found it, so I apologize if I’m not giving the proper recipe credits. In other words, please don’t sue me if this is your recipe. I’m just trying to be a good daughter, after all.
