Lemon Curd & Honey Ice Cream With Gingersnap Cookie Crumble

February 19, 2012 · 47 comments

First things first, the cute little 1/2 pint ice cream maker I found…..WELLLLLL it really didn’t do the job it should.  So the fun $14.00 I spent…..it was kinda a waste!  That being said, there was, sort of, ice cream made in my kitchen.  AND if you have a ROCKIN’ ice cream maker, you can totally enjoy this fun recipe! 

I think lemon curd is the nectar of the gods…that is just my feeling….but seriously you do agree it is AMAZING right?

That little jar of heaven I made a week or so ago, it has made dishes, and bites of sweet treats- the happiest feeling in the world.   Thank you to BigFatBaker for the wonderful no-fail recipe, I now am hooked!  I will be making more lemon curd tonight,  I need to refill that pretty jar of mine!

When I picked up this cute little 1/2 pint ice cream maker, I had my doubts about.  BUT seriously…$14.00 dollars…I had to try right?  It does churn the ice cream, but the bowl does not stay cold enough, so you can’t churn it long enough.  So instead I just kept it in the freezer, and stirred frequently.  It was worth the effort for sure.  The flavors are perfect together!

When I picked up the little ice cream maker, my hubby immediately said, ” I want lemon and honey ice cream!”  Sooooo…what my baby wants, my baby gets!  We agreed adding in some cookie crumble would give the ice cream a great crunch with each bite.

I could have made homemade gingersnap cookies, BUT  time is of the essence.  I have family finally arriving soon, SOOOOO EXCITED! I decided to pick up a fun bag of gingersnap cookies instead.

The recipe I adapted made almost two 1/2 pint containers full.  So you may need to adapt the recipe to the amount your ROCKIN’ ice cream maker makes!

Do you have an ice cream maker?  What is your favorite flavor of ice cream to make?  What is your favorite way to enjoy lemon curd?

Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,

    I have two ice cream makers – a cuisinart with the thingo you have to freeze and a Nemox you flip the switch and ice cream happens.  Since I forget to put the freezer thing in to get cold, I usually flip the switch.

    My faves are vanilla that I can turn into anything and chocolate that I can add things to.  Then I like strawberry, licorice, chocolate chip, blueberry, and I could go on for 45 minutes.  :)  I love ice cream.

       Two ice cream makers? Because one is not enough? LOL!!! I definitely think the one that you just flip the switch is the winner of course:-)  I agree, I would have a long list of my favorite ice cream flavors:-)  Sending hugs!

    You are creating amazing goodies with that lemon curd and this ice cream is no exception!  The Gingersnap crumble topping is the ‘cherry’ on the sundae, even though there’s already cherries on the sundaes ;)  Fabulous!! xo

    Lemon curd is pretty much awesome.  I have tried making ice cream a few times, and usually fail.  I’ve found a bit more success in making sorbets though.  Even with the ice cream maker not working, you still did a pretty great job here.

       Thank you so much!!! I think I may need to make it again, it is so full of flavor:-) Hugs, Terra

    Hey lady! I just whipped up a batch of your lemon curd and I’ll be using it in ice cream tonight. I’m gonna tweak the lemon-honey recipe a bit, add in a raspberry swirl. Thanks for the inspiration!
