Prep Time: 4 hours for chilling/freezing
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 4 hours and 10 minutes
- 1 package of large, round cookies (lemon, chocolate chip, coconut, vanilla, peanut butter, chocolate, etc.)
Lemon Ice Cream
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 6 teaspoons lemon zest
- dash of salt
- 6 egg yolks
- 3/4 cup lemon juice
- yellow food coloring (optional)
Here's how to make it:
- To make the ice cream, put the cream, milk, sugar, lemon zest and salt into a saucepot. Bring it to a boil.
- While it's coming to a boil, beat the egg yolks in a bowl. Add about 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture to the eggs to temper. Pour the egg yolks into the saucepot. Whisk to combine.
- Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture can coat the back of a spoon, about 4 to 5 minutes. Do not boil.
- Add the lemon juice and whisk. If using yellow food coloring, add now. Stir.
- Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold, abut 2 hours.
- Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Transfer the processed ice cream into a container and freeze about 2 hours.
- To assemble the ice cream sandwiches, let the ice cream soften just slightly so it scoops out easily. Add one scoop on top of a cookie, put another on top and gently press to form the ice cream sandwich. Place in a container. Repeat with the remaining ice cream and cookies. Cover and store in the freezer until ready to serve.
