Do you ever bring home new things from the grocery store and wonder what to do with it? I do. The Better Baker posted a recipe for Cinnamon Chip Cookies the other day, and I had to run out and buy some Cinnamon Chips. Cinnamon Chips aren't new, in fact they've been around for years, but I've never used them so they're new to me. When I think of Cinnamon, I think of autumn and apple pie. Of course summer has finally rolled around, so ice cream is the current go to dessert. I wanted to meld the flavors of autumn with the refreshing coolness of summertime ice cream and came up with this Cinnamon Apple Ice Cream Pie.
Instead of a typical pie crust, I wanted a cookie crust. I thought a more robust crust would hold up to the ice cream better. I went with an Oatmeal Raisin cookie crust. I started by creaming together 10 tbsps butter with 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup granulated sugar.
