Cooking Light ~ Fall Favorites

Our Virtual Supper this month is a fantastic festival of fall favorites. Y'all know that we all go to Cooking Light.com to find our recipes and then plan to sit down to supper on the first wednesday of the month.
I have a special treat this month. Although September in some parts of the country is Fall~ in Alabama we are still in Summer! It is hot enough that I didn't want to turn on the stove and heat up the kitchen. So instead of a pecan pie, I decided to bring some Pecan Pie Ice Cream. (click on the link for the recipe)

We have plenty of experience with my ice cream machine (Bill would say about 30pounds worth). I have posted more than 20 Ice Cream Recipes over the past several years. So in making this cooking light recipe, I did have to pull out my 'Perfect Scoops' cookbook to layer the pecan pie filling. This recipe wasn't very clear...
To have the perfect layers of pecan filling and ice cream, you will first make the filling and chill in the fridge. Then make the ice cream custard style and freeze that in an ice cream freezer.
Then you will layer the pie filling, and a layer of ice cream, repeating until the container is full. When you scoop out the perfect ball of ice cream, it will have ripples of pecan pie filling in it. The perfect garnish, of course, is a star cut from a pie crust (which I never got around to doing!).
The bowl says ice cream... the mouth says pecan pie a la mode!

Now let's see what everyone else has brought for our festival of fall favorites!
Shelby is bringing Butternut Squash Blue Cheese Gratin (I'm interested to try this one!)
Jamie has made Beef Daube Provencal
Val is bringing a salad of Frisée, Baby Spinach, and Golden Beets
Patsy is bringing Roasted Cauliflower with Browned Butter
Don't forget, that y'all are welcome to join in our virtual supper!


Y'all enjoy~
Sandi

Sandi, love the ice cream, wish I had some. It's still summer here (arrived late this year so it'll probably stay around til the end of Sept.) I don't mind. Your virtual luncheon sounds divine.

I'll take this pecan pie ice cream over pecan pie anyday. It looks fabulous and a perfect way to end our fall meal. Thanks Sandi!

This is a fabulous sounding ice cream. When I was a kid, what seems like forever, we had chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Now, ice cream opens new worlds for us.

Who made their own ice cream, way back then?
