Frozen Strawberry Dessert
Thursday, June 06, 2002
This is a family recipe from Rebecca Sodergren. When she didn't want strawberry pie for her birthday, she wanted this.
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup margarine or butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar, see note
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries, see note
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Additional sliced fresh strawberries, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir together first four ingredients and spread evenly in shallow baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Sprinkle 2/3 of baked crumbs in a 13-by-9-by-2-inch pan.
Combine egg whites, sugar, berries and lemon juice in large bowl. With electric mixer, beat at high speed to stiff peaks, about 10 minutes. Fold in whipped cream.
Spoon cream mixture over crumbs and top with remaining crumbs. Freeze six hours or overnight.
Serve with additional sliced strawberries. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
Note: One 10-ounce package frozen berries, partially thawed, may be used. Reduce sugar to 2/3 cup.
