Crushed lemon drops give this lemony ice cream its special magic. After your family tastes this ice cream for the first time, they’ll be asking for it year-round. For the best quality, use within 1 week.


  1. 1 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened
  2. ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons purchased lemon curd
  3. 24 lemon drops, crushed to yield ½ cup


  1. In a bowl, stir together the softened ice cream and lemon curd until well blended. Fold in the crushed lemon drops. Return to the carton or transfer to a container with a cover, return to the freezer, and freeze for at least 6 hours or until ready to use.
