How to make it

  • Lemon curd: whisk eggs and egg yolks in medium bowl
  • Melt butter in medium metal bowl set over large saucepan of simmering water.
  • Whisk in sugar, lemon juice, lemon peel, and salt, gradually whisk in egg mixture.
  • Whisk until thick (about 8 minutes)
  • Transfer to small bowl , press plastic wrap on top of lemon curd
  • chill 4 hours ( can be made 2 days ahead, but keep chilled)
  • Crust: oven 400
  • Mix pecans, sugar and butter until moist
  • Press into bottom and up sides of 9 inch glass pie plate
  • Bake until lightly toasted( about 12 minutes)
  • crust will slide down plate so take back of spoon and press crust back into place
  • cool crust and then freeze for 30 minutes
  • Dollop 1 1/2 cups soft ice cream over crust and spread into even layer
  • Spread lemon curd over ice cream and freeze until firm ( about 2 hours)
  • Dollop 1 1/2 cups softened ice cream over lemon curd, spread into even layer
  • Covert and freeze until firm(about 2 hours)
  • (sometimes I omit the top layer of icecream and just put it on the bottom)
  • Meringue::: use electric mixer, mix egg whites in medium bowl until frothy.
  • Beat in cream of tarter
  • With mixer running slowly add sugar
  • Beat until soft peaks form
  • Spoon meringue over pie, spreading to seal at edges
  • Using kitchen butane torch toaste meringue until golden in spots or place pie in preheated 500 oven until golden, about 3 minutes
  • Cut into wedges and serve immediately
  • Pie can be made day ahead and frozen
  • ENJOY!
