  • Spoon ice cream into foil-lined 1.5-L freezerproof bowl; pack firmly into bowl with back of spoon. Freeze 6 hours.
  • Heat oven to 425ºF. Combine flour, 3 Tbsp. sugar and baking powder in medium bowl. Cut in cream cheese with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk until mixture forms dough. Pat dough onto bottom of 8-inch round pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 12 to 13 min. or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, toss strawberries with 1 Tbsp. of the remaining sugar.
  • Cool cake 10 min.; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely.
  • Heat oven to 500ºF. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar with mixer on high speed 1 min. or until foamy. Gradually add remaining sugar, beating 3 min. or until stiff peaks form.
  • Place cake on ovenproof plate; top with strawberries and any strawberry juices. Unmold ice cream; place, flat side down, over cake. Frost ice cream with meringue; swirl with back of large spoon.
  • Bake on lowest oven rack 3 min. or until meringue is golden brown. Serve immediately.


Prepare using frozen strawberry yogurt, or any other flavour of ice cream.


Ice cream can be frozen overnight before unmolding onto cake and continuing as directed.
