It was my good fortune to be the winner of the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker here on JAP at the end of the summer last year.

This was a perfect Ice Cream to test out this awesome machine!

Lemon Ice Box Pie is one of my all time favorite summer time desserts. When I found this recipe for "Lemon Ice Box Pie Ice Cream" I was all over it! Oh my!! Some kind of brain freeze good ice cream!

Because I love blueberries and lemon together, I've added a blueberry topping to this ice cream.

    lemons

    half and half
  • 1
    (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 c
    coarsely crushed graham crackers
  • BLUEBERRY SAUCE

  • 2 c

How to Make Lemon Ice Box Pie IceCream w/Fresh Blueberry Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Grate zest from lemons to equal 1 Tbsp. Cut lemons in half; squeeze juice from lemons into a measuring cup to equal 1/2 cup.
  2. Whisk half-and-half, sweetened condensed milk, and lemon juice together. Pour mixture into a 1 1/2-qt freezer container of electric ice-cream maker; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Once ice cream freezer stops stir in graham cracker crumbs and lemon zest; transfer to an airtight container. Freeze in refrigerator freezer 2 hours before serving. NOTE: be sure to put the graham crackers in as a last step. They freeze well and add a nice little crunch. Also when I crushed the crackers, I put them in one bowl and lifted out the larger crumbs to the measuring cup, leaving the finer crumbs to use in another dish.
  4. BLUEBERRY SAUCE
    In a medium saucepan, mix the blueberries with the sugar, water and lemon juice. Simmer over meduim heat until the blueberries begin to burst, about 8 minutes, until the juices of the berries have released and made a sauce. Take about 1/2 cup of the berries and pulse in the food processer and return to sauce. Remove from the heat and toss in a few extra berries; cool. Refrigerate before serving.
  5. Once ice cream is firm, scoop into bowls and top with blueberry sauce.
