Cuisine: American
Servings: 5 cups of ice cream
Author: Kim Beaulieu


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup sugar I used vanilla sugar but regular is fine
  • ½ cup of fresh squeezed meyer lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt I used vanilla salt but regular salt is fine
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract

Use Nilla Wafers, or Gingersnaps for the cookie portion, or you could make your own homemade cookies


    • In a mixer combine the whole milk and sugar. Whisk on medium speed until sugar dissolves.
    • Add lemon juice and salt and whisk again for about 1 to 2 minutes on medium speed.
    • Add heavy cream and lemon extract. Whisk until fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes.
    • Cover your bowl and place in the fridge for at least one hour. I let mine age overnight.
    • Remove and transfer liquid to your ice cream maker bowl. Make sure it's frozen prior!
    • Place your bowl on the ice cream machine, set it all up and turn on. Let it whir for about 10 to 15 minutes.
    • Now line a shallow dish or container with parchment paper. Pour the ice cream into that dish. Pop in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or overnight. If leaving for an extended period make sure you cover it.
    • Remove dish from freezer. Use the parchment to lift out the ice cream and set it on a board.
    • Use cookie cutters or scoop out by hand.
    • Place ice cream on one cookie, then place the second cookie on the other side. Give it a little squeeze.
    • Voila, ice cream sandwiches.
    • You eat them straight away or save them for later.
    • If saving for later remember to wrap them tightly in plastic wrap.
    • Serve with a big old puckery smile!


    This has inactive time which I really wish Ziplist would add. You don't cook it but there is freezing time involved. So consider it has at least 1 to 4 hours of inactive prep time in your calculations. It has to set in the fridge for at least an hour at the first stage.
    This can be used with regular lemons.
    Remember when storing ice cream sandwiches for later use ALWAYS wrap them tightly in plastic wrap. Trust me on this one!
