Blueberry Pie Ice Cream

It has been reaching the 100-110*F temperatures here in Austin.  And you know what that means...time for some frozen delights.  Oh, also, we got an awesome Cuisinart ice cream maker for our wedding so I had to bust that thing out.

With fourth of July coming up (haha, oops, published this post a little late!), this would be the perfect dessert to bring to a backyard BBQ.  I found the recipe via a Pinterest post about all these different fun ice cream recipes.  http://www.somethingswanky.com/cinnamon-graham-cracker-ice-cream/

The recipe can be found at this blog, which probably has the prettiest background and font ever.  http://shewearsmanyhats.com/2011/06/blueberry-pie-ice-cream-recipe/
I used canned blueberry pie filling, but if you have the time, you can use homemade too.  I thought about it for a while and had a pint of blueberries to make some, but then got lazy.  Since this was the first time I'd made homemade ice cream, I pretty much just followed the recipe exactly, so no point of re-posting the recipe.
I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Blueberry Pie Ice Cream!


Oh, and I also made ice cream sandwiches using leftover graham crackers.   Just spoon some ice cream between graham crackers, wrap in foil, and freeze until re-hardened. My favorite way of eating this, because the graham cracker crumbs are kinda subtle in the ice cream alone.

Reid likes the ice cream sammie's too!
