How to make it

  • In a large saucepan combine 3 cups of the half-and-half or light cream, the sugar, and eggs. Cook and stir over medium heat just until boiling. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth; gradually beat in hot mixture. Cover and chill thoroughly.
  • Stir in remaining half-and-half, lemon peel, lemon juice, and vanilla. Freeze in a 4- or 5-quart ice cream freezer according to the directions. Ripen 4 hours. Garnish each serving with choice of fresh fruit, if desired. Makes about 3 quarts (24 servings).

    Tried this last night. I'm not impressed with the performance of my new ice cream maker. (one of those that you freeze the canister, instead of using ice and salt) But this recipe is the bomb! Since my machine just wasn't cutting it, I put the mix in the freezer. The consistency came out great; just like what you would buy in the store. And it tastes great. My kids thought it tasted a lot like rice pudding, which they love. So it was a hit with them as well!!!
