Creamy Homemade Blueberry Pie Ice Cream

I have a corny sense of humor.

I love jokes that are so stupid you just have to laugh at them.

Why did the golfer wear two pairs of paints?
In case he got a hole-in-one.

Haha!  Funny, right?

Well anyway, you can imagine my disappointment when, on Sunday, I tried making this ice cream concoction and my (moms) ice cream machine wasn't cold enough so I wasn't able to name this post "Ice Cream Sunday".

I'm sorry that I wasn't able to provide you all with such a clever title, which I'm sure has never been used before.

What I can provide you with, though, is an extremely delicious ice cream recipe!  We had some blueberries in the fridge and I still hadn't thought of an ice cream to make yet, and from there it's all history.  The pieces of frozen pie crust in this are so delicious, and the whole blueberries/blueberry sauce add a very nice touch to the whole thing.  Mmm!

Put together oil and water.
Roll out dough and poke holes in it.
Baked pie crust.
Break cooled pie crust into pieces.
Somewhere in between here, make the blueberry filling.
Make Ice Cream mixture

Make ice cream according to ice cream maker's instructions.

Put in a cup.

Admire the gobs of blueberries and broken pie crust.


Blueberry Pie Ice Cream


Mom's Pie Crust:
1/3 cup water
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
(Or use a store bought pie crust/your own recipe)
**You will probably only use half of this recipe.

Blueberry Filling:
1 cup blueberries
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Ice Cream:
Adapted From:  Cuisinart
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoons pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375.
First, make the pie crust.  Fill a measuring cup 1/3 cup full with water.  Add 2/3 cup oil, add in a couple of ice cubes, and mix until combined and cold.  Put flour in a bowl and slowly pour the oil/water mixture into the flour, combining with your hands.  Mix with hands until just combined. Do not overmix!
Let dough chill in the fridge while you make blueberry sauce.
For the blueberry sauce, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan on low heat until the mixture thickens a bit, adding more water if needed.
Once your blueberry mixture is finished, chill in the refrigerator.
Get out the pie crust.  **You will only need half, unless you want your ice cream to consist mostly of crust.  Freeze the other half or refrigerate for later use... like for this!: Delicious Symphony Bar Pie.  Roll out the dough on a well-floured surface.  Once rolled out, place on a cookie sheet and poke holes in the dough.  Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until dough is firm.  It will not be darker.
Let the crust cool, break into small pieces and store in freezer for later use in ice cream.
Now, make the ice cream.
In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed to combine the milk and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Turn the machine on; pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture.
At this point, go ahead and pour in your chilled blueberry mixture and desired amount of broken up crust.
If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
Enjoy! :)
