Ingredients for Vanilla Ice Cream
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
2 cups heavy cream
Ingredients for Peach Crisp Filling
4 cups peaches, sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Ingredients for Peach Crisp Topping
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons butter, room temperature
01For the vanilla ice cream, in a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract or paste.
02Add the heavy whipping cream to another large bowl and using a hand mixer, slowly and gradually increasing the speed to high, beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form (about 2 minutes). When you pull the mixer up from the cream, the peaks will stand straight up and hold their shape.
03Gently fold a heaping spoonful of whipping cream into the condensed milk mixture and stir. Fold remaining whipping cream into condensed milk until well blended.
04Pour the mixture into a metal loaf pan and place in freezer for 6 hours before serving time.
05Make the peach crisp before serving. For this, preheat the oven to 350°F.
06In a large bowl place the sliced peaches, brown sugar, cornstarch, ground cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Toss to evenly combine.
07Transfer peach mixture to baking dish into an even layer.
08In a separate large bowl, combine the old-fashioned oats, brown sugar, and flour. Add in the softened butter and mix, using a fork to mix until the texture is crumbly.
09Sprinkle this topping in an even layer over the peaches.
10Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling at the edges.
11Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
