Cherry Pie Ice Cream

September19

My love for sickly-sweet canned cherry pie filling is well-documented. I make no apologies and I’m not ashamed. (And… I am getting help. Really. Not Really.)

Cherry Pie Ice Cream - Mama's High Strung

 

I found a can of cherry pie filling in the back of my pantry (how in the world did THAT get there I wonder?)… I immediately thought, “A pie would be nice, but I don’t feel like making one.” Then it hit me… “Hmmm… ice cream! Yes, that’s the enchantment I can create!”

And I did… Cherry Pie ice Cream.

You don’t have to go through the gymnastics (like I did) of making homemade ice cream. Buy a high-quality vanilla bean ice cream, let it soften a bit and stir-in the canned cherry pie filling. I won’t tell. You definitely have to make the streusel because it is so darn delicious. If there’s any leftover, sprinkle it on your oatmeal.

We both know that there are some things in this world that you know aren’t healthy and should be avoided… but then you don’t. Or won’t.

But it’s okay.

As I always say…fat is your friend!  Besides, you don’t eat like this everyday and, well, it’s nice to spoil those you love once in a while.

Especially yourself.
