Mammy’s Irish apple pie with Bailey’s ice cream – brighten up your weekend with these recipes
The perfect dessert, to treat the ones you love with, this weekend
What better way to use the wonderfully sweet and juicy seasonal fall apples than in everyone’s favorite apple pie. Personally, I think warm homemade apple pie is not complete without a scoop of ice cream.
Here’s some simple recipes for the perfect fall dessert - Mammy’s Irish apple pie with Bailey’s ice cream:
Baileys Irish Cream ice cream
6 egg yolks
4 oz. (1/2 cup) extra fine sugar
18 fl oz. milk
1/2 pod vanilla, split
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 fl oz. (1/4 cup) heavy cream
2 fl oz. (1/4 cup) Baileys Irish Cream
Use a whisk to beat the eggs with 1 oz. of the sugar in a bowl until the mixture lifts from the surface in ribbons.
Put the milk, the remaining sugar, and the vanilla into a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Pour over the egg mixture, beating well.
Return to the saucepan and heat gently to thicken the mixture until it coats the back of a spoon – don’t heat too fiercely or it will turn to scrambled egg.
Strain through a sieve and leave to cool.
Beat the heavy cream and Baileys Irish cream into the mixture.
Put the cream mixture in a large freezer container and freeze.
Remove from the freezer every 15 minutes to beat out any large ice crystals that have formed, until the mixture is mousse-like.
Freeze until set, about 2 hours.

Roll dough to 1/8 of an inch.
To lift pie shell, roll dough around rolling pin and then unroll into pie pan. Trim overhanging edges of pie crust.
