Creamy Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is an easy homemade ice cream that tastes just like a slice of your favorite pumpkin pie! This perfectly spiced ice cream is great for serving on top of holiday pies, and makes a fantastic dessert on its own!
In a large heavy bottomed saucepan, mix together all of the ingredients except the vanilla. Heat over medium-low heat until the mixture is very hot to touch and thickens slightly, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cooking the mixture blends the flavors and thickens the custard. Refrigerate until cool.
Stir in the vanilla and freeze the ice cream in batches in an ice cream maker according to manufacture’s instructions.
Makes about a gallon of ice cream. A serving of ice cream is generally about ½ cup each, making about 32 servings.
