Meringue Shell

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (whites only)

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

6 tablespoons sugar

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (yolks only)

2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 300°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in bowl at high speed until foamy. Continue beating, gradually adding sugar, 2-4 minutes or until glossy and stiff peaks form.

  3. STEP 3

    Spoon 8 (3-inch) meringue circles onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Build up sides to make a bowl shape on each circle. Bake 20-25 minutes or until meringues are golden. Turn oven off. Leave meringues in oven 1 hour. Remove from oven. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, butter and egg yolks in 2-quart saucepan with whisk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 8-10 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened. Stir in lemon zest. Refrigerate 1 hour.

  5. STEP 5

    Spoon ice cream and sauce into each meringue shell. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired. Serve immediately.
