I am a big fan of no-churn ice creams because they are easy to put together and require no special equipment. This No Churn Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is a refreshing twist on pumpkin pie, with a mousse-like ice cream that packs in all the familiar flavors of pumpkin pie in a completely new way.<br /><br />Most no churn ice creams start with sweetened condensed milk, which brings in all the sugar and richness you need to give you ice cream a velvety mouthfeel. This recipe starts with a homemade pumpkin pie filling mixture. The base is made with pumpkin pie, brown sugar and spices, and it is thickened with an egg, just like pie filling. The base is cooked on the stovetop until it thickens, giving it a true pumpkin pie flavor. It is folded into whipped cream, which aerates the ice cream without having to use an ice cream maker, and frozen until it is firm enough to scoop.<br /><br />The ice cream is sandwiched between graham cracker squares to make the ice cream sandwiches. You can use any kind of honey grahams, but the cinnamon-topped variety are particularly tasty. The ice cream needs to freeze hard enough that it is easy to scoop, but you will probably have to let it soften a bit after the sandwiches are made so that you can easily bite into them. Fortunately, the scoops will soften in a couple of minutes once the sandwiches are set up.<br /><br />I recommend making these shortly before serving, as the graham crackers will lose a little of their crispness if they are stored in the freezer for an extended period of time. That being said, they can certainly be in the freezer for a little while, so you can assemble these before dinner and bring them out after the main meal without a problem.<br /><br />No Churn Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches 1 cup pumpkin puree (or 2 cups homemade pumpkin puree) 2/3 cup brown sugar 1 large egg, room temperature 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 cup milk 2 cups heavy cream 8 large graham crackers<br /><br />In a medium bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, brown sugar, egg, spices, vanilla, salt and milk until smooth. Transfer to a large skillet or small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens to the consistency of pudding. This should take no more than 5 minutes. Allow pumpkin mixture to cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, beat heavy cream to soft peaks. Fold in pumpkin mixture until completely incorporated. Transfer to a shallow pan and freeze until firm enough to scoop, at least 2 hours. Break large graham crackers into squares. Place 1 scoop between each pair of graham cracker squares. Serve immediately, or freeze until ready to serve.<br /><br />Serves 8<br /><br />The post No Churn Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches appeared first on Baking Bites.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
