Because who has the time to slice their lemon meringue pie and scoop ice cream on top?

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
For the other components of this ice cream you'll need:
  • 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.
This sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing. I need to try this soon! ;)
This sounds SO good. Lemon Meringue is my favorite kind of pie (that, or maybe pumpkin! :))<br><br>I'll definitely have to try this- Where do you find the lemon curd- in the baking section of the grocery store? I've made it before, so maybe I could just use that recipe! :-P<br><br>Good job! :)
I think I'll try this one first because I think I've had apple pie ice cream before, but never lemon meringue ice cream. Thank you for posting it, and good luck with this one too!
Good call - this was my personal favorite of the two. Let me know how yours turns out!
