I have friends who are visiting Italy right now and I decided that the friends left behind should have some Italian fun as well. This past weekend we got together for wonderful Italian dinner. We made our own pasta, we drank Italian soda & wine and we had Lemon Gelato for dessert. This gelato was so easy to make. Everyone loved this creamy and refreshing Italian treat. Who needs Italy? Enjoy!
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cup half and half cream
1 1/2 cup sugar, granulated
3/4 cup freshly lemon juice
3 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. In a glass bowl, using a hand mixer combine creams and sugar until sugar dissolves. Stir in vanilla, lemon juice and zest.
2. Refridgerate the mixture for at least 2 hours.
3. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and allow it to freeze. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze gelato overnight.
