For the filling

  • 34 Medium apples, sliced
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp Light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Bourbon
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Apple pie spice

For the ice cream base

  • 3 C Heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 1/4 C Light Brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Bourbon
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 C Walnuts, crushed


  1. Pre-freeze ice cream maker according to manufactures instructions.
  2. Slice apples into small pieces and squeeze a lemon over top and stir to combine.
  3. Add brown sugar, flour, maple syrup, cinnamon, apple pie spice over top of apples. Stir to mix ingredients.
  4. Heat apples on the stove over medium heat for 15-20 minutes until soft. Stir occasionally. You want the apples to be mushy like apple sauce, instead of the larger chunks. Set aside and allow to cool completely, refrigerate if necessary.
  5. In a medium sauce pan, combine 2 cups of heavy cream, sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, bourbon and cinnamon. Stir until mixture is boiling for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 1 cup of heavy whipping cream.
  7. Refrigerate until mixture is completely cold. If mixture gets slightly firm, it may be reheated until liquid forms again. Return to the freezer to cool rapidly.
  8. Start your ice cream maker before adding the liquid. Pour liquid in slowly and churn on low for 10 minutes until custard starts to form. Increase speed and churn for another 5 minutes. Pour the smashed apple pie filling into the ice cream. Add half of the crushed walnuts.
  9. Once mixture has reached custard form, stop the mixer and spoon into freezer safe container. Layer in remaining walnuts.
  10. Freeze for 4-6 hours.
