Lemon Frozen Dessert



It seems like it should be called "Frozen Lemon Dessert".. but being that this dessert is one of my dad's favorites, he believes the word "lemon" should come first.

Lemon Frozen Dessert

Ingredients:

1 Lemon, juice and zest
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cups of sugar
1/2 heavy whipping cream
Graham crackers (crushed)

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a double boiler at medium heat. Stir with a whisk for 8-10 minutes, until it thickens.. to the point where it coats a spoon. Pour into bowl and let cool (or refridgerate.) While it cools, whip the cream and once the lemon concoction is cooled, fold in the whipped cream. Line the bottom of an 8x8 pan with crushed graham crackers, pour in mixture and top with remaining graham crackers, freeze.

Try not to eat all of it.
