I was in a total lemon mood the other day.  That happens often around our house.  It was also a sunny, warm day so ice cream was sounding pretty good too.  I have shared my favorite lemon ice cream recipe here on the blog before .  It is pure lemon loveliness!

Today I decided put a little twist on that lemon ice cream, and  turned it into lemon meringue pie ice cream.   I love lemon meringue pie!

I had a bag of vanilla meringue cookies I had bought earlier (for a little gluten free treat for the husband) and I wanted to use them in something.  I decided they would be the perfect thing to use for the meringue in the ice cream.  For the crust effect I used vanilla wafers.  I had some from Trader Joes which are yummy but a regular old vanilla wafer will do too.  I crushed up both of them so I had one cup of each.

I added all the ingredients into my 2 qt Cuisinart ice cream maker and let it churn.  Right before it is done churning I add in the crushed up meringue and vanilla wafers and let it mix in.  I add it at the end so they don’t get dissolve into it as it churns.

I love biting into a little piece of cookie or meringue in the creamy ice cream.

The recipe uses lemon extract.  I used about 2 tsp but if you want a subtler lemon use less.  Add to your personal taste.

So next time you are in the mood for pie and ice cream why not combine the two with lemon meringue pie ice cream!

    So sad I just saw the posts about the buy one get one free. I have been busy the past couple days and just got to checking a few websites including yours. Is there anyway I could get a bottle free if I put in a order now?

    This sounds delicious! Wondering if I could use baked pie crust instead of the vanilla wafers? Also if I could sub lemon juice for extract? Thanks!
