This dessert is one of our favorite twists on a traditional apple pie. Vanilla ice cream is topped with spiced, cooked apples and crumbled cookies. It's delicious, sweet, comforting, and perfect to make when the leaves start changing color and you've enjoyed a trip out to the apple orchard. No one will be able to resist the combination of sweet apples, brown sugar, ground cinnamon and allspice, and crushed vanilla wafers. It's everything you love all in one bite. For added convenience, the apple topping can be made up to 2 days ahead and stored in the refrigerator. Keep some on hand for whenever you need a quick and easy dessert.
