  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  3. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the apples, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook until the apples have lightly browned, and the sugar has begun to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Remove from the pan, and allow to cool completely.
  4. Combine cream, half and half, 1 cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in a large bowl; mix to blend well. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. When the ice cream has finished, stir in the crumbled cookie, caramelized apples, and walnuts. Add the dulce de leche by the teaspoon while stirring to evenly distribute.

This turned out pretty good. I did make 3 minor changes. First, since I used the hard store-bought cookies I just crumbled them and added without the baking step. Second I chopped the apples into bite-sized pieces instead of slicing them. Third I did cook the egg/cream mixture because I have young children. They all liked it - the cinnamon wasn't overpowering.

This is the best ice cream I have ever had! I chopped my apples instead of leaving them in slices. I also added an extra tsp of cinnamon to the apples by sheer accident, it turned out to be fine. I left out the walnuts as most of my family isn't really fans. Its yummy with out the nuts. For the caramel topping try making the Praline Sundae topping from this site (which is out of this world). I love the chopped bits of oatmeal cookie throughout(the hard store brand cookie works great. Awesome recipe I will be making this all summer!

I love this recipe. I did, as suggested, leave the nuts out and I diced the apples into small pieces. I also used only 2 tsp. of cinn. I entered this recipe in an apple dessert contest and won 1st place. Thank you, the ice cream is delicious!

I really enjoy competing in the Ice Cream Crank Off at our County Fair. I have not particapated in several years and have always done well. Competed in State Fair Crank off and place 3rd. This recipe won me Grandchampion and tasters choice award at the county fair level and am taking it to state. I even left the carmel sauce out, time ran out to add it I had so many people ask for the recipe. The one thing I did different was I mixed the cookie crumbs with the butter and baked the 5 mins and when they came out of the oven I then patted them down. This recipe is truly a GRAND-PRIZE winner.

This was really good with a FEW minor changes. I followed the 'chopped not sliced' advice of another reviewer, which made it really quick and easy, and since I think nuts are icky I left them out. I served the oatmeal cookies on the side. BUT...wouldn't this ice cream be yummy between 2 oatmeal cookies as an ice cream sandwich? Just an idea...

This tasted just like apple pie ala mode!! It was delicious! My changes were substituting vanilla wafers for the oatmeal cookies and omitting the nuts & caramel sauce.

Fabulous in all ways, wouldn't change a thing. I did cook the creams and egg because of the raw egg issue. If you do this, make sure the cooked mixture cools almost to room temp before putting it into the ice cream maker.

I served this as a Memorial Day dessert, and it was absolutely delicious and loved by all. I scaled down the recipe to 6 servings, and the mixture fit perfectly in my 1-quart ice cream maker. One small problem- I didn't let the apples cool completely before adding to the ice cream mixture, so I think the majority of the apples sunk to the bottom of my storage container (my fault). One guest said that it tasted just like a Ben and Jerry's ice cream that she had long ago. Someone else suggested that the ice cream would be perfect with the fried apples served over the top rather than inside the ice cream. All in all, it's a fantastic recipe. Don't be afraid of the steps required to make it- it is well worth all the effort!!
