It's still one of my favorite summer-time treats.

There's time to make it

Did anyone try it last summer?

Lemon Meringue Ice Cream


2 egg whites

1/8 tsp salt

1/3 c. sugar

Put a rack in middle of oven, preheat to 250 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat whites and salt in med. bowl with a mixer at med. speed until whites hold soft peaks.
Add sugar 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating at high speed until meringue holds stiff, glossy peaks, about 1 minute. Spread meringue into a 9in. round (like a blob!) on parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake until firm to touch, about 1 hour. Turn off oven and let meringue stand in oven 1 hour. Transfer meringue (on parchement) to a rack to cool completely.Peel off parchment and, working over a bowl, break meringue into1/2-to1 in. pieces.


1 1/2c. heavy cream

1 c. whole milk

3/4c. sugar

4 tsp. finely grated lemon zest

1/8 tsp. salt

6 egg yolks

Add hot cream mixture to yolks in a slow stream, whisking constantly, then pour back into pan. Cook custard over moderate low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until custard is thick enough to coat back of spoon(170 F). Do not let boil.Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into clean metal bowl and stir in lemon juice. Cool custard to room temperature, then refrigerate, covered, until cold, at least 3 hours

Freeze custard in ice cream maker.
Transfer ice cream to bowl and top with meringue.
