If you love lemon meringue pie and you love ice cream, than this combination of the two is the perfect summer treat for you. Lemon meringue pie ice cream will soon become a highly requested summer treat in your home.
I have shared my favorite lemon ice cream recipe here on the blog before. It is pure lemon loveliness! But sometimes you want something more. I love lemon meringue pie, so I put a little twist on the original recipe and created lemon meringue pie ice cream.
The idea for lemon meringue pie ice cream cam from a bag of vanilla meringue cookies I had bought for my husband. They were delicious and I knew they would be the perfect meringue in my lemon meringue ice cream. For the crust, I used vanilla wafers. 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!
