  • 1 pie crust (from a refrigerated pack of 2 or from scratch)
  • 1 tablespoon (13g) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon divided
  • 2 cups cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 ounces (226g) cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Mix granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Unroll pie crust and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Press lightly with your hands to seal it to the crust. Spray the crust lightly with cooking spray.
  • Bake crust for 8-12 minutes, until light golden brown around the edges. Let cool completely before making ice cream.
  • Beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Place cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in another large bowl and mix with a hand mixer until smooth. You can do this by hand, but I find that using a hand mixer makes it easier to get out the lumps. Mix in vanilla and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Fold in Cool Whip (see note).
  • Crumble cooled pie crust into small pieces and stir into ice cream mixture. I reserved about 1/4 of the crust for topping, but you can add it all if you wish.
  • Place ice cream in a large resealable container and freeze for at least 4 hours but overnight is better. Will keep in the freezer for up to one month.



  • You can use reduced fat cream cheese and/or sweetened condensed milk
  • You can substitute 2 containers (8-ounces each) cool whip for the heavy cream.
