Do you like to cheat? Admit it. Sometimes you do. It's okay, I like cheating sometimes too.

As I type up this recipe, I feel like I am cheating. I usually make everything from scratch. You know, I make my own pasta, my own bread and even my own cheese! So posting an ice cream recipe where I don't actually make the ice cream feels naughty--but in a good way! You know why, because I got to eat the ice cream that much sooner. Yum!

Ingredients

Caramelized butternut squash 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Vanilla bean ice cream 1 Pint
Chopped pistachios 2 Tablespoon (Optional)
Bourbon caramel sauce 2 Tablespoon (Optional)

Directions

GETTING READY

1. Place a baking dish in freezer for overnight or until frozen

2. In a blender, put the caramelized butternut squash and blend until smooth puree.

3. In a piping bag fill the caramelized butternut puree and set aside.

MAKING

4. In a frozen baking dish, put the ice and spread it, to make an even layer, using a back of a spoon.

5. Pie the butternut puree in thin layer, all over the ice-cream.

6. Place the baking dish in freezer for about 1 to 2 hours or until chilled.

SERVING

7. In glass serving bowls, scoop the ice cream, sprinkle pistachios and drizzle with bourbon sauce if using.

8. Serve chilled.

TIPS

You can also spread butternut puree, using spoon if you don’t want to use piping bag.
