Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream
This delicious treat is a lot easier than its impressive looks suggest
Ingredients:400g strawberries, hulled
1 lt vanilla dairy ice cream
200g all butter shortbread fingers, broken into small pieces
4 tbsp Waitrose Seriously Buttery Caramel Dipping Sauce
- Thinly slice four of the strawberries and roughly chop the remainder. Line a 1.5lt loaf tin with a double layer of clingfilm, allowing for some overhang. Arrange the sliced strawberries in the base of the tin.
- Using a large knife, roughly chop the ice cream then mix with the chopped strawberries and the shortbread pieces. Spoon half of the mixture into the prepared tin, patting down firmly so there are no air bubbles.
- Dot the caramel sauce on top of the ice cream then cover with the remainder of the mixture, firmly smoothing over the surface. Fold over the overhanging clingfilm and place in the freezer for several hours or overnight until very firm.
- To serve, gently lift out the ice cream and remove the clingfilm. Leave to soften for 10–15 minutes then slice thickly with a large knife. To make it extra easy to turn out the ice cream, place a long strip of parchment paper in the tin before lining with clingfilm.
