Apple Pie Kefir Ice Cream

This past Thursday was my older child's first day of school. To celebrate, we went out for ice cream. As we walked from the car, we discussed what flavor he might like to have. His response was "pear!" I wasn't confident they would have such a gourmet flavor, so I mentioned that we could make our own pear ice cream sometime (though I'd never done it before!). On the way back to the car, after he'd enjoyed his scoop of mint chocolate chip and I my cookies 'n cream, we bought a 2 quart Cuisinart ice cream maker at Williams-Sonoma (which happened to be right where our car was parked - convenient!). When we got home, I immediately opened the box, washed the mixing bowl and put it in the freezer (it's filled with a fluid and needs to freeze completely before you can make your frozen treats). The next day, I decided to just go for it. But I did not have any pears. I examined my refrigerator and freezer and discovered: 1 bottle of vanilla low-fat kefir, 4 organic gala apples and some frozen all natural pie crust. So I decided to make: Apple Pie Kefir Ice Cream! My family LOVED it. Once completely frozen, it becomes quite hard, so if you plan to freeze and serve it another day, allow it to thaw for 5 minutes before serving, or make these into popsicles!
