  • 8 oatmeal cookies, crushed

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter, divided

  • 2 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 3 cups whipping cream

  • 1 ½ cups half and half

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 3 eggs, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ¼ cup chopped toasted walnuts

  • ¼ cup dulce de leche or caramel ice cream topping


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

  2. Mix crushed cookies with 1 tablespoon of melted butter, and press onto a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, then remove, allow to cool completely, then crumble.

  3. Melt remaining tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in apples, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook until apples have lightly browned, and 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 the manufacturer's instructions.

  5. When ice cream has finished, stir in crumbled cookies, caramelized apples, and walnuts. Add dulce de leche by the teaspoon while stirring to evenly distribute.
