Homemade Lemon Oreo Cookie Ice Cream

Lemon Oreo Cookie Ice Cream from One Curly Fry

Since I have a bigger kitchen and a lot more storage space, I’ve been able to play with more of small appliances. The first thing I put to use after we moved was my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. It’s been years since I’ve made ice cream and it just  made me realize how much I’ve missed it!

As you can probably tell from some of my previous recipes (Lemon FluffLemon Pound Cake with Vanilla IcingBlueberry Lemon Scones, etc.), I’m a huge fan of lemon flavored things. So when I was grocery shopping (online), I came across Lemon Oreo Cookies. I was so excited when I saw them, that I had to buy them. And I knew right then and there what I was going to do with them. Lemon Oreo Cookie Ice Cream. It was a no-brainer.

I definitely prefer making my own ice cream because I know what’s in it. If you look at the ingredients on the ice cream carton you get from the grocery store there are always so many words you can’t even pronounce.

This has quickly become my favorite Homemade Ice Cream, and I’ve made quite a few flavors. It’s just the perfect balance of sweet and zesty! I love the texture and the added flavor that the Lemon Oreo Cookie Pieces give it.
