Lemon Meringue Ice-Cream Pie

Pat Duran


Two treats in one! Use easy homemade lemon curd or that from a jar to get a burst of tangy lemon flavor.
This is an easy and quick pie- this pie can be made ahead for up to 2 weeks!

Recipe from Southern Living tweaked by me.
Make this the day before you want to serve.
