25. Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream (p. 855)

Everyone loves ice cream. Everyone loves cheesecake. So you have to know that this recipe, which combines the two, is going to be a winner.

This was super easy to make. Blend together the strawberries, cream cheese, sugar, milk and lemon juice, and then stir in the cream. After it's good and chilled, the mixture goes into the ice cream maker. (Have I told you how much I love my ice cream maker?) That's all there is to it.

This is a great ice cream. It's rich and sweet, but not too sweet, with a good amount of strawberry flavor and a touch of tang from the cream cheese. It has the great texture of cheesecake, but it melts in your mouth like ice cream.

The only way this recipe could have been improved would be to find a way to incorporate the graham cracker crust.
