Instructions

Make the Ice Cream

  • Whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, and eggs in a saucepan.  Whisk in almond milk and half-and-half, and cook the mixture over moderately high heat, whisking constantly, until it just comes to a simmer.  Strain the custard in to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill until cold.  Next, whisk in the remaining almond milk and half-and-half and freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

Make the Cookie Crust

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Put pecans on baking sheet and toast for approximately 5 minutes. Meanwhile, grind cookies in a food processor until finely ground.  Remove to a mixing bowl. Next, process toasted pecans until finely ground, and add to cookie crumbs.  Stir together with a fork until well mixed.

Assemble the Lemonade Pie

  • Use small dessert bowls, custard cups, or ramekins to assemble the dessert.  Place 1/8 cup of cookie/nut mixture at the bottom of each bowl.  Top with one {or more!} scoops of lemon ice cream , another 1/8 cup of cookie/nut mixture and fresh raspberries.
