So, this was an interesting recipe. Now that I’ve made it and everything, I still don’t quite know how to describe it? Maybe like one of those strawberry crunch ice cream bars we had has kids? But a little lighter than that.
It even started with making the crust/topping. It was a pretty basic pie crust recipe, but the recipe kept describing it as “crumbs” Mine was most definitely not crumbly. It stuck together. Then they came out harder/baked. And then the recipe said to press them in. Which would have been easier if I hadn’t of baked it? It was a all a tad confusing.
Making the filling on the inside was a little more successful. It was really light, (almost a little too light, I would have liked a little bit more flavor to it.)
So, I put it in the freezer, for which the recipe says to do for a minimum of 3 hours. I literally forgot about it.
I was sitting on the couch watching Game of Thrones (I know I’m only on Season 3) probably 4 and a half hours later and my roommate was like “is that cake thing done yet?” To which I ran to grab it.
I think I over-froze it. The strawberries were like little popsicles inside the cream center, like a minefield of coldness. The consistency of everything else was pretty good.
I put it in the fridge after the fact. I’m hoping that will thaw the strawberries out a bit.
Overall, a little bit too much effort for something that was just fine tasting.
