Berry icecream jelly cake


This is a winner

 

Using plain brand short bread and condensed milk does in fact make this an inexpensive dessert and a very tasty one at that

 

Ingredients

  • 250g packet shortbread cream biscuits
  • 60g butter, melted, cooled
  • 395g can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 600ml tub thickened cream
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries, plus extra, to serve
  •  packet strawberry jelly crystals
  • White chocolate curls, to serve




Note, I prefer to use plain brand vanilla ice cream instead of cream (2.20 for two litres ) as it is in fact cheaper than cream and works really well I have also found that frozen whipped cream can be very difficult to cut as it gets ice crystals

Method

  • Step 1
    Using a food processor, process shortbread biscuits until fine crumbs. Add butter. Process until just combined. Press mixture over the base and side of a 6cm-deep, 20cm (base) springform cake pan, leaving a 2cm gap from the top. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Step 2
    Using an electric mixer, beat condensed milk, vanilla and 1/2 of the cream until soft peaks form. Fold in raspberries. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Level top with a spatula. Cover surface with plastic wrap. Freeze overnight.
  • Step 3
    Using an electric mixer, beat remaining cream until just thickened. Add jelly crystals. Beat until soft peaks form. Spoon onto pie. Using a spatula, make peaks in cream. Freeze for 1 hour or until just firm. 

    Remove pie from pan and place on a serving plate. Top with extra raspberries and sprinkle with chocolate curls. Serve.

  1. Your pie looks quite pretty. I was wondering what thickened cream is as I have not seen it here in US. Using vanilla ice cream sounds much nicer. I am going to try this when we have some visitors.

  2. Heavy cream is whipping cream which is thicker than normal cream, however if you want to make it thicker faster or to get a firmer cream add milk powder it is amazing in cream.you will love it and am pretty sure you will like using icecream too
