Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream

Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream....what could be better?? We are a family of lemon fanatics when I came across a recipe I decided to play around and create my own!
If you can make the homemade graham crackers and marshmallows it makes it that much better!
I also used it in my Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream Cake!

1.5 cups sugar*
3/4 cup FRESH lemon juice*
3 eggs, beaten*
2 tsp lemon Zest*
2 TB butter*
1.5 tsp vanilla
1.5 cups half and half(milk is perfectly fine as well)
1.5 cups heavy whipping cream
3/4 cups coarsely crushed graham crackers
3/4 cup mini marshmallows

In a double boiler over simmering water(medium heat) combine sugar and  lemon juice stir until the sugar is dissolved , add in beaten eggs and continue to whisk over the heat for 12-15 minutes until it is nice and thick. Add in butter and zest and cook 2 minutes more.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.

In a bowl combine half and half, heavy cream and vanilla
Slowly add in the cooled lemon mixture and blend gently.
Chill in the fridge for at least 4-6 hours(overnight is best).

Freeze in your ice cream maker per manufacturers instructions

Dont have an ice cream maker?? Follow instructions HERE

add in graham crackers and marshmallows in the last minute or so.

* 1 1/4 cup prepared Lemon Curd can be substituted for these ingredients/steps
