This summer has definitely kept me busy. I mentioned in an earlier post that I cook for my husbands team that he manages in the summertime. Most of them are single guys that don’t really know how to cook. So I love when one of them gives me one of their family recipes and wants me to make it for them. I feel like it gives them a little taste of home while they are out here. ๐Ÿ™‚

Strawberries and cream dessert bar on a white plate with cool whip and strawberry on top.I can’t even describe how amazing this recipe turned out. I loved the crust surrounding the frozen dessert. It gave it a little crunch and it was delicious! The middle was creamy and I loved the fresh frozen strawberries inside. The guys all loved it and described it as strawberry iceย cream sandwich. This is the perfect summertime dessert and I am so happy to have gotten this delicious recipe. Thanks Calvin! ๐Ÿ™‚

Frozen Strawberries and Cream Dessert

By: Alyssa Rivers
A delicious and creamy frozen dessert made with fresh strawberries.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Freezer Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours 35 minutes
Servings: 12 Pieces

Ingredients 

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 325 and prepare a 9x13 by spraying with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, combine graham crackers and pecans until finely ground.
  • Melt butter and combine with crumbs, flour, and brown sugar.
  • Spread mixture in the bottom of a parchment lined pan and cook for 20 minutes, stirring halfway.
  • Take out the crumb mixture and let cool.
  • In a kitchenaid, or using a hand mixer, beat egg whites and sugar on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add heavy cream and mix for 6 minutes.
  • Add juice from one lemon and cream cheese and mix until creamy.
  • Gently fold in chopped strawberries.
  • Press half of the crumb mixture into the bottom of your 9x13 pan. Spread strawberries and cream mixture on top and sprinkle the rest of your crumb mixture on top.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and freeze for at least 3 hours but best if overnight. I also found that if you let it sit out 10 minutes before cutting it is easier to remove the bars.

  1. I have frozen blueberries in the freezer…I wonder if it would be just as good with already frozen fruit.
    I am looking for recipes to use up leftover whipping cream. I have no vehicle to go and buy fresh berries.
