Two Layer Baked Alaska Recipe

Publisher Photo
The very first desert I made for company was a Baked Alaska. It was a complete disaster. When I finally got it right I branched out and made two-layered treat, which was a total success and continues to be a favorite. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario

Directions

  1. In a microwave, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Stir in the cracker crumbs, pecans and brown sugar. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Spread chocolate ice cream into crust. Layer with strawberry ice cream. Cover and freeze 1-2 hours or until firm.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, water and butter to a boil; stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Add the chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature. Drizzle 1/2 cup over ice cream. Freeze until firm.
  4. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar. With a hand mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating over low heat until egg mixture reaches 160°, about 4 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a bowl; beat 5-7 minutes or until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Immediately spread over frozen pie. Heat with a creme brulee torch for 3-4 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Serve immediately with remaining chocolate sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
