Frosty Strawberry Squares

Standard

food 373

This refreshing dessert is just that, refreshing. Great SUMMER dessert for sure! It has a lovely tang from the lemon juice and a sweetness from the strawberries, and the cream cheese/whipped cream layer holds it all together. Let’s not forget about the crust….personally THAT is my favorite part. I like to drizzle mine with warmed hot fudge sauce, reminds me of a chocolate dipped strawberry or sometimes I sprinkle each serving with mini chocolate chips, cause chocolate is good. I hope our family enjoys this frozen treat!

* Do NOT use my chopped strawberries as an example, chop yours SMALLER!! Else you will be biting into HARD chunks of strawberries…..each time I make this I forget that, but won’t anymore now that I have a picture to remind myself!

Frosty Strawberry Squares 
1 c. flour
1/3 c. brown sugar
4 whole graham crackers, crushed
1/2 c. margarine, softened
2 egg whites
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. heavy whipping cream
4 oz. softened cream cheese
2-3 TB. lemon juice
10 oz. fresh strawberries, chopped SMALL

Mix together the flour, brown sugar, crushed crackers and margarine. Spread mixture in an even layer in a 9″ x 13″ pan. DON’T press down. Bake @ 350* 20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from oven and cool. Take out 1/3 of the mixture, set aside, and spread the rest out a bit in the 9″ x 13″ pan.

Beat the egg whites and sugar for 3 minutes. Add the heavy whipping cream and beat another 6 minutes. Add the softened cream cheese and lemon juice. Beat till mixed well. Add strawberries and mix 1-2 minutes, till all combined. Spread this over the bottom crust, spread and top with the remaining crumbs. Freeze till firm, at least 6 hours. If frozen overnight, take out about 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy.
