Cinnamon Gelato

I've been wanting to make ice cream for a while. I think it's because spring is taking so long to really arrive. I got excited when I saw the forecast and it was going to be in the 70's and even one day in the 80's. So we made ice cream. Actually, Cinnamon Gelato.
We saw this on Worst Cooks in America. It was part of the dessert that Anne's final recruit made for the final competition. We both like cinnamon a lot, so we definitely wanted to try it. It's delicious and creamy on it's own, especially after a couple of days when the cinnamon flavor really starts to come out. We made it the same weekend we made Apple Pie Bars:
 So of course, we scooped the gelato on top the bars and had a really, really tasty dessert.
I used to love Kings cinnamon ice cream with apple pie. Something about that combination really appeals to me. Vanilla ice cream on apple pie is good, too, but cinnamon is better. Not too long ago, just a few days after we made apple pie bars and cinnamon gelato, I had the chance to have a taste Kings cinnamon ice cream on apple pie.

Ours was so much better. Their ice cream tasted too hard and too sweet to me. I think I might be getting spoiled by homemade ice cream!
