Frozen Strawberry Cream Dessert

The last leftover slice just waiting for you on the plate…

Hi there–Is is summery at your house?  I know we have a month to wait, but we’re feeling the heat today and I’m glad we have some leftover Strawberry Dessert sitting in the freezer– sweet, light and summery, just waiting for me to scoop it up.

FROZEN STRAWBERRY CREAM DESSERT

CRUST:
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Mix it all up and spread it in a large springform or a 9″x 13″ pan sprayed with Pam.  Bake it at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until it’s firm.  Let it cool before you add the filling.

FILLING:
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
2 cups sliced strawberries
1  cup whipping cream
Beat the egg whites, sugar and strawberries at high speed until soft peaks form (about 10 minutes).  Then separately whip the cup of the whipping cream.  Finally,  fold the whipped cream gently into the strawberry mixture and spoon it into the cooled crust. Stash it all in the freezer for 6 hours or more.

TOP IT OFF:
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. instant vanilla pudding mix
another nice strawberry, or two, to plop on top
Beat the whipping cream with the powdered sugar and vanilla pudding powder (it stabilizes the cream).  Spoon it on top of the dessert when you take it out of the freezer to serve it up.  Top it off with a berry.  Viola!
