Step-by-Step

  • 1Whip the eggs and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add sugar gradually and beat until sugar is dissolved then add the strawberries in gradually and whip on high for about 3-5 minutes but use your common sense(like my mother always did)you will see when it is all whipped.
  • 2Whip the heavy cream until peaks form then fold in the strawberries mixture. Pour into the crust.
    Freeze.
    An hour before serving put in the refrigerator.It will be perfect to cut.
    Now to make is very festive my mother would put sliced strawberries that have been macerated in liquor. 2 cups of slice strawberries for one cup of water 4 TBS of sugar and 1/3 cup of liquor.
    Pour the syrup over the fruits and let it macerate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  • 3Preheat oven at 325 degrees.
