Easy Lemon Meringue Ice Cream

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Wild Thyme Flour

This recipe can be made a month in advance.The crushed meringue inside the ice cream adds that extra something. I use the sort of ice cream machine that you freeze 24 hours ahead.

Great, simple ice cream! We loved the bits of meringue throughout. This is the first time I've used store bought custard in a homemade ice cream, and it worked really well. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
