This is a delicious and easy ice cream, which does not require an ice cream maker. I love to put a scoop of this lemon ice cream on top of a warm piece of blackberry cobbler or pie - the flavors meld so well. I have been making this for 38 years, since I got the recipe from a cookbook that a school where I worked put together. One of the teachers, Mrs. Barksdale, submitted this refreshing recipe.

Fresh, tart and creamy dreamy! This would be superb served with any type of fruit cobbler...
