Cause I know you love it! And now you can make it yourself!

Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream.


3 tbsp cornflour

300 ml/10 fl oz cold water

juice and grated rind of 2 lemons

175 g/6 oz caster sugar

2 eggs, separated

400ml Double Cream.

Optional; 4-6 Small Meringue Shells broken into pieces.

To make the Lemon Meringue Pie mix;

Put the cornflour, water, 4oz of Caster Sugar, lemon juice and rind into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring.

Cook for 2 minutes.

Cool a little (10 mins).

Add the remaining sugar and the egg yolks to a glass bowl and whisk them over a pan of hot water (just off the boil) until they increase in volume and become a thick and creamy ribbon texture.

Gradually Pour the 'lemon mix' into the Egg yolk mix stirring constantly. Return the mix to the stove and cook for 5 mins taking care not to boil the mix. Remove from the heat and leave the mix until cold.

Whip the cream to soft peak then fold into the Lemon Meringue Pie mix.

If using the Meringue Pieces; fold them into the mix, pour the mix into an air tight container and freeze.

Remove from freezer 15 min before use.

Can't speak for Wolfie and the FE but it sounds great to me especially as I love Lemon Meringue pie! Thanks for the recipe :0)

Thanks for that.

As me and the girlfriend have a whole week together (Valentines day and all that)

We will spend tomorrow making these :)

Just printing the recipe now.

Any chance of a rum and raisan ice cream recipe?? ;)

Just a plain Rum recipe for me please, I am allergic to raisins/currants etc. I've printed off the Lemon Meringue Pie Ice cream one, all I have to do now is persuade the boss its essential. Thanks for the recipe. ..Bingalau..

or Mint Choc Chip, I will experiment on rum and raison, as these are MY recipie(s) not ones from a book.

Be sure and cook the yolks but don't scramble them...
