The discovery of no-churn ice cream has revolutionized my life. This silky and creamy ice cream is loaded with whiskey caramelized apples, crunchy shortbread cookies and topped with a shiny and decadent salted caramel sauce. Ice cream never looked this sexy.
Note 1: I prefer Granny Smith apples as they have the ultimate tartness. Other apples will be too sweet against the caramel and ice cream.
Note 2: Feel free to make your own short bread cookies. I adore the Lorna Doone brand. They are fantastic and it just so happened to be the brand I had in the house.
Note 3: Making caramel is surprising easy and a lot less intimidating if you know a few rules. Rule 1. Always start with a VERY dry and clean pan. Rule 2: Do NOT touch the sugar. Let it cook. If you touch with with a whisk, or a spoon, you will cause it to crystalize and you will not have glorious smooth caramel.
Note 4: The heavy whipping cream in the mix acts as a sort of stabilizer. It prevents the caramel from hardening again. Same reason we add heavy whipping cream to a ganache, it's a stabilizer.
