Cheesecake Ice Cream

 Now this is cheesecake ice cream!  I had wanted to start with this recipe a month ago when I was craving cheesecake ice cream, but at that time, I didn't have all the ingredients on hand and didn't want to tote all 3 kids into the grocery for just a couple of items.   If nothing else, I learned that David Lebovitz's recipes are the best.  (You can read the story and see the recipe of my other cheesecake ice cream here).  That was then and this is now.  This is the recipe that I will use from here on out.  Creamy, smooth, and actually tastes like cheesecake.  The only problem with this recipe is that you will have to make 2 batches to completely satisfy the craving!!!

8 ounces cream cheese
1 lemon
1 cup sour cream

Directions:
Cut the cream cheese into small pieces.  Zest the lemon directly into a blender or food processor, then add the cream cheese, sour cream, half-and-half, sugar, and salt, and puree until smooth.

Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions.
