Happy first day of September! Pumpkin ice cream feels like an extremely appropriate way to say goodbye to summer, while welcoming fall with open arms. And what better day than today? September is the month I liberate my need to make everything with nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin, and apple.
Our house smells like one of those adorable novelty shops you can only find on charming apple orchards in the Midwest. You know the smell! It all invokes the same warm fuzzies you get when you hear the first crunch of leaves under your feet, or break open a box of new crayons. FALL.
However, if you live in a warm climate like me, the first part of the fall is blazing hot. Even on September 22, which is the actual fall equinox—when it is socially acceptable to bust out your plaid scarves and pumpkin spice lattes. Since we will still be in tee shirts and shorts, the appropriate pumpkin treat to have in hand is a pumpkin ice cream cone.
