Lemon Cheesecake Ice Cream (Regular or Diet) for electric ice cr

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Dee514

A yummy, rich, refreshing dessert on a hot summer evening, or any time. This is an old ice cream recipe which was developed before there was "fat free" Half & Half. The fat free Half & Half may be substituted in either version according to your preference. Note: This recipe contains uncooked eggs, you may use pasteurized eggs or substitute Egg Beaters or egg substitute for the raw egg yolks. You may use pasteurized egg whites, powdered egg whites, or egg white substitute for the raw egg whites. Cook time = the freezing time for my (brand) ice cream machine. There is a 1-2 hour chill time for the mixture prior to freezing.

OMG! I am NOT an ice cream lover, but I was given an electric ice cream freezer for mother's day, so went in search of a great recipe, and did I ever find one! This is the absolute best ice cream I have ever eaten. I made the regular version, doubled the recipe because I have a 4 qt. freezer, used cream instead of half-n-half, and it was just OUT OF THIS WORLD!!
