This easy ice cream recipe combines two of your favorite desserts into one mega-delicious-fusion of creamy lemon goodness.
Step 1: Prep Creamy Base
- 1 tbs freshly-grated lemon zest
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 egg yolks, whisked (be sure to keep the whites for step 2!)
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- ginger snaps
- more butter
- more sugar
- 1 jar lemon curd
There aren't many steps to making this ice cream base! Simply combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, and whisk constantly over a moderate heat.
When it just starts to simmer, strain mixture - making sure to really get out the cream from the lemon zesty bits.
Let cool and then transfer to an air-tight container (or a strong Ziplock bag) and place in the refrigerator to chill.
