Hi friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. We did! I can't wait to show you all my big purchase I made today! You won't believe the bargain I found! But before that, I am also excited to show you my newest invention: pumpkin pie ice cream sandwiches! The pumpkin ice cream is homemade (sort of) but you don't need an ice cream maker!
For the pumpkin pie ice cream:
1 cup softened vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Adjust these amounts to your liking!
Stir together until blended. Refreeze for 15 minutes or so.
For the ice cream sandwiches:
Pumpkin pie ice cream
light Cool Whip or real whipped cream
Dollop a TBS of ice cream and a TBS of Cool Whip on a graham cracker square and top with the other graham cracker. My ice cream was super soft still so I put the Cool Whip on the second cracker and smooshed them together.
|omg. that doesn't look appetizing at all. But really, they taste so yummy! Close your eyes while you make them.|
Wrap in foil or waxed paper. They will squish out a bit but who cares?
Refreeze until you are ready to eat. They are delicious and the perfect way to usher out the last bit of summer while welcoming the first bit of fall.
By the way, I used a knife to slice off the edges once they were frozen to make neater pictures. But you don't need to do that at all.
I am loving all the fall crafts and decorations everyone is showcasing lately! It gets me in such a good mood and now our weather is crisper and more autumnal. Isn't it so nice to watch the seasons change? Join hands with me as we run around Stonehenge chanting to the autumn gods, ok?
