FROZEN STRAWBERRY ROYALE DESSERT

5-INGREDIENT FROZEN STRAWBERRY ROYALE DESSERT

YIELD: 8-10

PREP TIME: 15 minutes

COOK TIME: 4 hours or overnight

TOTAL TIME: Freeze 4 hours + 15 minutes

If you can’t find the pourable fruit topping in the store, you can use frozen strawberries. Mash them first and use the juices!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 sleeves (9 1/2 oz. total) graham crackers (or 2 cups finely ground)
  • 10 Tbsp. butter
  • Cooking-oil spray
  • 1 pt. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 18 oz. Pourable Fruit topping (strawberry), or 2 (10 oz) pkg frozen strawberries, mashed
  • 1 lime, zest (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Break up crackers and whirl half at a time in a food processor until finely ground (or use pre-ground). Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring every 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown throughout, 6 to 8 minutes total. Pour into a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, heat or melt butter (stove or microwave). Drizzle crumbs with butter and toss to coat. Let cool.
  3. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper; coat with cooking-oil spray.
  4. Pour cream into a mixing bowl; beat on medium speed, slowly drizzling in 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk. Then beat to stiff peaks. Set aside, chilled.
  5. Evenly sprinkle bottom of lined pan with 1/2 cup graham-cracker crumbs, spreading in an even layer, using a small spatula. Dollop half of whipped cream on top. Carefully spread cream level, without stirring up crumbs.
  6. Spoon (or pour) 1/2 bottle of strawberry Pourable Fruit topping (or *mashed frozen strawberries) over the cream. Use the juices! Sprinkle 1 cup crumbs on top.
  7. Repeat cream and strawberry fruit layers. Sprinkle top with remaining crumbs, but don’t smooth down.
  8. Wrap dessert with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, but still sliceable, about 6 hours. Remove from pan and cut into wedges. Garnish with lime zest or a mint leaf; serve!
  9. Make ahead: Up to 2 weeks, and keep in freezer.  To serve, let stand at room temperature until just soft enough to slice, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
