Mr. Food: Berry Cheesecake Ice Cream Squares

Sunday, July 08, 2012

July is National Ice Cream Month! Mr. Food has a recipe to keep cool on a hot summer day.

Serves: 20

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups finely crushed butter crackers (See Note)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1 (3.4-ounce) package instant cheesecake pudding and pie filling
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 quarts strawberry ice cream, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 20 strawberries for garnish

    Instructions:
    1. In a medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter; mix well. Press crumbs into bottom of a 9- x 13-inch baking dish; refrigerate until ready to fill.

    2. In a large bowl, whisk together pudding and milk until slightly thickened. Stir in ice cream until well mixed. Evenly spoon into crust. Spread whipped topping evenly over ice cream; cover.

    3. Freeze 6 hours or overnight. Cut into squares, top each with a strawberry, and serve immediately.

    Notes:
    Our Test Kitchen tried these with both Ritz and Sunshine crackers. Both worked fine.
