There is only one thing to say about this cream and that is this is absolutely the best lemon ice cream ever! It’s not too lemony, it’s not too sweet — just the perfect combination of both. My family LOVES homemade ice cream, we have been making it for as long as I can remember. In fact, you could probably consider us homemade ice cream connoissers, so when I made this and took it to a family party last year, everyone went crazy over it. It really is amazing. I have so many yummy ice cream recipes that I can’t wait to share.
I saved this lemon ice cream recipe from the newspaper a couple years ago (see, my mom has rubbed off on me). The lady who shared it said it’s her mom’s recipe and according to her mom, you must put the ingredients in the order they are listed and the cream MUST GO IN LAST (those were her mom’s exact words). Maybe that’s the secret to this stuff tasting so dang good!
Make it for your next BBQ, make it for dessert tonight, make it just because I said so . . . .you won’t be sorry!
