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.

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.
