In a medium pot, scald the half and half, heavy cream, ½ cup sugar, and the inside of the vanilla bean

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks and ½ cup sugar together until pale yellow and slightly frothy

VERY SLOWLY, stream the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture (if you add it too quickly, the hot milk will scramble the eggs)

Once all of the milk mixture is whisked with the eggs, pour it all back into the pot and heat over medium/low heat until thickens. You will know if thick enough once you dip a wooden spoon in it, drag your finger down the back of the spoon and see if the mixture stays divided or runs back together. Once it stays divided, it’s ready

Strain through a fine mesh strainer and cool completely. This is your ice cream base

In a large sauté pan, melt the butter and sauté apples and cinnamon until tender, about 3 minutes

Pour apple mixture into a blender, add cream cheese, and 2 cups of ice cream base. Blend until smooth

Whisk the blended liquid in with the remaining ice cream base and continue to chill

Once mixture is completely cold, pour into running ice cream maker and run for 20-30 minutes or until thick and creamy

Transfer to an air tight container and freeze the rest of the way! (or enjoy as soft serve!)
