Strawberry and Cream Bars
There are some things that just scream summertime and these bars and one of them.
Imagine a soft custard top over the best strawberry ice. YUM. Make them for 4th
of July or just make them because they are worth it. Either way your friends and
family will be ever so grateful!!
Strawberries and Cream Bars
2 pounds of strawberries, hulled and halved. (6 cups)
1 1/2 cups sugar
7 large egg whites
2/3 cup cold heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1) In a blender, combine strawberries, 3/4 cup sugar, and a pinch of salt and
puree until smooth. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Transfer to freezer
and scrape with a fork every 30 minutes until mixture is thick and slushy,
2 hours. Smooth top with rubber spatula.
2) In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat egg whites on high
until foamy. With mixer on medium, gradually add 3/4 cup sugar. Increase
speed to high and beat until stiff, glossy peaks form, 3 minutes. In another
bowl, beat cream and vanilla on high until stiff peaks form, 1 to 2 minutes.
With a rubber spatula, gently fold whipped cream into the egg white mixture.
Pour over strawberry mixture and smooth with rubber spatula. Freeze until
firm, about 4 hours. Makes 12 bars. Everyday Food.
