Bourbon cream pumpkin pie ice cream consists of chunks of pumpkin pie, flaky bits of pastry amidst a delectable bourbon cream base. It’s one of our favorite ways to enjoy the last piece or two of leftover pumpkin pie.

My Secret Ingredient for Perfect Ice Cream

We like to incorporate mini bottles into various recipes to add an adult kick, such as this Sriracha guacamole! However, adding a bit of shot of liquor to ice cream has additional benefits, besides the burst of flavor.

The addition of a shot of liquor to a batch of homemade ice cream results in a softer, easier to scoop finished product. The alcohol helps prevent larger ice crystals from forming, which gives it a smoother, creamier texture.

How to Make Bourbon Cream Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

This bourbon cream has aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel blend with undertones of vanilla and sweet pecan, all of which come through nicely in the ice cream. While this one is good, you can use ANY bourbon cream and the recipe will be just as tasty.

This recipe uses a piece (or two) of leftover pumpkin pie. Cut the pie into small chunks and place it in the freezer while you prepare the ice cream.

Chill both the bowl and beaters fifteen minutes in the refrigerator prior to making the ice cream. You can omit this step, but, the colder the bowl and utensils are when you begin, the faster the ice cream comes together.

In fact, I normally store one of my KitchenAid mixer bowls and whisks in the freezer so I can whip up a batch of ice cream fast.

Pour the heavy cream into a chilled mixing bowl and whip with an electric mixer or electric beater. As the cream is whipping, add the powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, allowing each addition to fully mix in before adding the next.

Transfer the mixture to your ice cream machine. We’re using the ice cream attachment for our KitchenAid stand mixer. Start the machine and let it run, then add the cream base to the frozen bowl.


Allow the machine to run for about fifteen minutes.

While I used to use Rubbermaid containers, they break easily once they’ve been frozen.

We prefer these fabulous SUMO ice cream containers instead. The SUMO’s are double insulated which keeps the homemade ice cream easily scoopable. Bonus- the containers are slender, stack easily, and fit easily in the door; Plus, there’s a spot on the lid to write with a whiteboard marker so you can easily identify the flavor inside.
