TIP: Apple Pie With Salted Caramel Ice Cream

  Most people serve their apple pie or pecan pie à la mode with vanilla ice cream. That’s the classic, but we’ve always preferred Rum Raisin, a festive holiday flavor.

Yet some people like neither rum nor raisins. The emergence of Salt Caramel ice cream and gelato over the past few years has provided another perfect pairing with apple pie or apple crisp.

So today’s tip is: Serve Salted Caramel ice cream with your apple or pecan pie.

While salted caramels, the candy, have been made in France for hundreds of years, we thought Salted Caramel ice cream was a 21st century San Francisco phenomenon (we first had it at Bi-Rite Creamery there).

According to Graeter’s, the Cinncinnati-based ice cream emporium, their Salted Caramel flavor has been sold in Graeter’s stores for more than 100 years. Pints of it are now available in the premium ice cream freezer section at food stores across the country.

suggests their Sea Salt Caramel Gelato with apple pie or apple crisp. Here’s their recipe:



Ingredients For 4 Servings

  • 6 medium tart apples, sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice*
  • Salted Caramel Gelato
    *PUMPKIN PIE SPICE RECIPE: Combine 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 4 teaspoons ground ginger and 3 teaspoons ground allspice. If you don’t need the 8 tablespoons this produces, cut it down accordingly: 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/3 teaspoons each nutmeg and ginger and 1/2 teaspoon allspice.
