Bake the Book: Lemon Mint Sherbet
Alice Medrich, author of Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts has been dubbed the chocolate queen for reasons all too obvious (and delicious), but after making our way through her latest volume, we want to rename her the food processor queen. She's incorporated this workhorse of an appliance into many of the recipes within Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts, thus cutting the labor factor down immensely without sacrificing quality or taste.
This Lemon Mint Sherbet is a shining example of Medrich's way with the processor. Instead of breaking out the ice cream maker, she's come up with an innovative method to make smooth, lemony sherbet by freezing the base and then whizzing it in the bowl of the food processor, aerating it, and then returning to the freezer to firm it up a bit more. It's bright, fresh, and even a little sparkly, and the best part is there's no need to dust off the ice cream maker.
