Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oven to 400°F. Bake the pastry shells according to the directions on the package. With most brands, you remove the top layer-which becomes a lid-after about 20 minutes and cook the remaining pastry a few minutes longer. Let the pastry cool completely before filling.

  • Meanwhile, mix the strawberry slices with the preserves. If the berries are super-ripe, you probably don't need the preserves.

  • Fill the shells with the strawberry mixture, then microwave ice cream on high for 20 seconds. It won't be entirely melted, but after you stir a few times you'll have a perfect vanilla "cream" sauce. Pour sauce over berries and top with the pastry lid. The sauce also makes an irresistible topping for brownies and fruit salad.
