The idea is pretty simple, a custard based ice cream with chunks of strawberries, cream cheese and graham cracker crust. Of course, if you happen to have a slice of cheesecake lying around you could just crumble it into the ice cream. For the crust I just made a simple graham cracker crust and crumbled it. I was a bit worried that the graham cracker crust crumbs would get crushed in the ice cream maker so I added them half way through the freezing process hoping that they would stick together better. The strawberry cheesecake ice cream turned out really well! You could taste and feel the difference in texture of the chunks of strawberries, cream cheese and the graham cracker crust.

"Pretty good. I don't have an ice cream maker so I improvised but aside from that came out super yummy"


1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
1/4 cups Sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup strawberries; cut into small pieces
2 small cubes cream cheese (about 2 tablespoons)
1/4 cup graham cracker crust; crumbed
1 Graham Cracker Crust:; see next ingredients
1/4 cup graham wafer crumbs
1/2 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Butter

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Graham Cracker Crust

Mix everything in a bowl. Press the mixture onto the bottom of a baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Let cool completely.

Ice Cream

Heat the cream, milk and sugar in a sauce pan until it almost boils, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low. Add one tablespoon of the cream mixture to the eggs to temper them. Add the egg mixture to the sauce pan. Cook at low heat until it thickens and can coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Chill the mixture in the fridge. Start freezing according to the instructions for your ice cream machine. About half way through add the strawberries, cream cheese and graham cracker crust crumbs.

I'm almost positive the '2 small cubes' is actually two 3oz blocks of cream cheese.

Kimia -- One of your ingredient lines reads '2 small cubes.' I'm not sure what this is supposed to be. Please let us know. Thanks in advance. Joe A.
