SUMMER ICEBOX CAKE WITH BERRIES

IMG_4808 ICEBOX CAKE

Feel free to make a flag design if you’d like to. I usually do, but today I just didn’t feel like it.

INGREDIENTS:
2 pkg. (3.4 oz each) Instant Cheese cake pudding
2 ¼ cups cold milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip
2 ½ cups sliced strawberries
1 ½ cups blueberries
Cinnamon graham crackers (whole)
OPTIONAL: 3 oz melted chocolate (Semi-sweet, milk chocolate or white chocolate)

PREPARATION:

Beat pudding with milk and vanilla for a good two minutes. Add cool whip and beat until just incorporated.

Place one layer whole graham crackers in bottom of 9” x 13” baking dish. You will have to break some to get them to fit evenly.

Spread half of pudding mix on top.

Put a layer of strawberries on top of pudding layer.

Place another layer of graham crackers on top. You can either fold the blueberries in the pudding mixture – OR – place the next layer of graham crackers on top and then add the pudding mixture, placing the blueberries decoratively on top. Garnish with a few strawberries.

OPTIONAL: Drizzle melted chocolate on top. Chill for four hours.

  It’s strawberry and rhubarb season.  Need I say more?  Strawberries and rhubarb in a homemade lattice-topped pie crust is sure to wow your guests. It’s quite easy, too.  Really!

INGREDIENTS:

Double pie crust (unbaked)

1 ¼ – 1 1/3 cups sugar

3 TBSP quick-cook Tapioca

¼ tsp nutmeg

3 cups rhubarb, cut into 1/2 pieces (don’t peel)

2 ½ cups fresh strawberries, cut in half or quarters

PREPARATION:

Place all ingredients (except pie crust, of course) into a large bowl and mix with a serving spoon until well combined.  Place pie crust into a pie plate and pour in the fruit mixture.  Go ahead and give the lattice top a try.  It’s very easy.  I usually cut 1″ strips.

Bake at 375° F for about 50 minutes.
