Lemon Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe: Fun Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches With Lemon Ice Cream

Creamy homemade lemon ice cream is sandwiched between two cookies to create a dessert you won't soon forget. Any cookie will work – lemon is a flavor that plays well with others. If you want an even simpler version of this lemon ice cream sandwich recipe, buy store-bought lemon ice cream. We won't tell.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 4 hours for chilling/freezing
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 4 hours and 10 minutes


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: 

  1. To make the ice cream, put the cream, milk, sugar, lemon zest and salt into a saucepot. Bring it to a boil. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
  4. Add the lemon juice and whisk. If using yellow food coloring, add now. Stir. 
  5. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold, abut 2 hours.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
