Key Lime Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches

I made these key lime pie ice cream sandwiches for a family party.  When it was time to serve dessert, my cute little sister Savannah and I left some hidden in the freezer so that there would be more for us!

Lime Ice Cream

1 cup whole milk
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 tablespoons lime zest
1/2 cup lime juice

Whisk together or blend (using a hand blender) milk and sugar until sugar nearly dissolves.

Add cream, lime zest and juice.

Add mixture to your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions.

Transfer ice cream to a freezer safe container and freeze for several hours or, ideally, overnight.

To assemble:  Generously scoop the ice cream onto a graham cracker.  Gently push down with another cracker to make a sandwich.  Wrap each sandwich with saran wrap and freeze for several hours before serving.

  1. This is the recipe I use, and it’s the ONLY one. The man who gave it to me had tested every recipe he could find and determined this was the best. There’s just no arguing the greatness of this pie.
