Sweet Potato Pie ice cream
Sweet Potato Pie ice cream combines the warmth of autumn pie spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves - with the lingering delight of a summer treat. The marshmallow swirl stays gooey in the fluffy ochre ice cream. As it melts in your mouth, you'll be left hoping that your Thanksgiving and Christmas pies live up to this experience!
Time seems to move faster when temperatures fall. In autumn, the city comes alive with new restaurants and a reunion of friends after their summer travels. Just as the wind kicks colorful leaves in the air in spiral cyclones, the brisk chill energizes me to reconnect with friends and reflect upon the warm months behind us. This "back to school" excitement always takes me by surprise.
The flurry of excitement can also be exhausting, and can leave me longing for a cozy weekend day at home. And nothing tastes cozier than pie...with ice cream.
