Pear + Apple + Ginger Crumble with Cinnamon Ice Cream

serves 8-10

Cinnamon Ice Cream

    3 cups heavy cream
    ¾ cup sugar
    pinch of salt
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    seeds from 1 vanilla bean
    4 large egg yolks
  1. In a saucepan, combine the heavy cream, sugar, salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract along with vanilla bean seeds over medium heat. Bring to a simmer.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. In a slow stream, gradually add the hot cream mixture to the eggs, stirring constantly to incorporate.
  3. Once well combined, transfer the custard back to the saucepan and continue to cook over medium-low heat until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir continuously.
  4. Strain the custard into a container and let it cool before tranferring to the fridge. Once the mixture is chilled, pour into an ice cream maker and churn until frozen.
  5. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze until firm.


Fruit Crumble

    1 cup rolled oats
    ½ cup all-purpose flour
    ½ cup slivered almonds
    1 cup sugar, divided

    1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
    ½ teaspoon grated lemon zest
    ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, almonds, ½ cup of sugar, ginger, salt and butter. Mix until large crumbs form.
  3. In a 2-quart baking dish, toss the pears, apples, cranberries, ginger, lemon zest and vanilla with the remainder of the sugar and cornstarch.
  4. Sprinkle the oat crumble over the fruit and bake until the topping is browned and juices are bubbling, about 20 minutes.
  5. Let cool slightly. Serve with cinnamon ice cream.
