Ingredients:

• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
• 1/2 cup butter, melted
• 2 egg whites
• 1 cup white sugar
• 2 cups sliced strawberries
• 2 tablespoons lemon juice
• 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.

2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, walnuts and melted butter. Toast in the oven until walnuts are fragrant, about 15 minutes; stir occasionally. Sprinkle 2/3 of the walnut mixture evenly over the bottom of the 9×13 inch dish.

3. In a large bowl, whip the egg whites with the lemon juice until they can hold a soft peak. Gradually add white sugar while continuing to whip to firm peaks. Fold in the strawberries.

4. In a separate bowl, whip the cream with an electric mixer until stiff but not grainy. Fold into the strawberry mixture. Spoon over the crust in the dish and spread evenly. Top with the remaining walnut mixture. Freeze for 6 hours, or overnight.

Review:

I enjoyed every aspect of making this dessert dish, and found it to be a very good way to build my cooking skills, seeing as I am not a very experienced chief.
Between the preparation time and the baking/ingredient combination, I spent about an hour in the kitchen and froze the dish overnight. I would advise those who plan to use this recipe to be especially careful when preparing the egg whites; making sure to whip them until they are very stiff. This will ensure that the strawberry filling is thick enough to support the weight of the top crust, and will not sink through the bottom crust. It is also important to thoroughly freeze the dish, and not leave it out in warm temperatures for long amounts of time because the strawberry filling melts fairly easily.
If/when I recreate this dish, I plan to make a thicker crust on the bottom and possibly use a different type of nut. Using a different fruit in the crème filling would be an interesting addition that could add flavor to the dish. Overall, I found the recipe and results to be very useful and accurate, and would definitely recommend this recipe.
