Growing up, my mom had a secret weapon. Whenever one of her friends needed a meal brought in, she always made sure to bring her signature Dutch Apple Pie. It was delicious, and everyone always raved about it.
Little did they know, her signature Dutch Apple Pie was actually one of Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies. All she did was pop it in the oven and sprinkle on streusel.
Now that I am older, I still love “my mom’s” signature pie. Any holiday that is associated with pie is now associated with Marie Callender’s® Dutch Apple Pie. I love it so much that last week I pie-cycled it into homemade ice cream. And it was the best decision I made all week.
It only takes four ingredients, and it was incredibly easy. The longest part was freezing the ice cream, and there’s no way around that.
First, bake your pie according to package directions. If your crust starts to burn, you can put some foil along the edge. Then let the pie cool COMPLETELY. I let mine cool overnight.
Next, whip 2 cups whipping cream until stiff peaks form. It takes a while, but you want to be able to pull your beaters up and have a little peak stay there.
Gently fold in 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk and 1 tsp. vanilla.
Now for the Dutch Apple Pie! I scooped 3 cups of pie and added them into my ice cream base. Make sure you crush up the pie crust and get that in there, too! Again, gently mix it in.
Last, pour into freezer-proof containers (make sure you have a little room between the lid and the ice cream!) and let freeze for 4-6 hours. Then you can enjoy your homemade Dutch Apple Pie ice cream!

Now since my mom always gave her pies away to her friends, I wanted to continue the tradition and #ShareTheJoyOfPie with my ice cream!
I thought an ice cream sundae package would be a fun gift to accompany my ice cream, so I got a container and some tissue paper and added in caramel topping, gold sprinkles, waffle cones, and Reddi-Wip®.
I put a container of my Dutch Apple Pie ice cream right in the middle.
This ice cream sundae gift is a super easy way to do a random act of pie-ness (haha, see what I did there?). Drop it off at someone’s house without telling them you’re coming, and it is sure to brighten their day. Sometimes, pie and ice cream really can solve all your problems.
