Peach Pie Gelato

There's no crust but all the flavors of a peach pie is in this frozen treat.  I might crumble some cookies next time for a little more texture but for right now, I'll just savor the peach and cinnamon goodness.






Peach Pie Gelato

1# peaches, peeled and sliced (I used frozen so all the hard work was done)
2 cups whole milk
2/3 cup sugar
3 large egg yolks
1 cup whipping cream
1 tbsp peach vodka (optional)
1/4 tsp cinnamon

In a large saucepan, bring the milk to a simmer.

Lightly beat egg yolks, gradually temper with the milk and then add into the saucepan. Heat until thickened, stirring frequently.

Place frozen peaches in a food processor.  Pour into a bowl and stir in the cream, peach vodka and cinnamon.

Cool egg mixture for a few minutes before pouring into the peach mixture.  Stir and place a piece of wax paper on top.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  

Pour into ice cream maker and run per manufacturer's directions.
