How to make it

  • With a 3 1/2 -inch round cookie cutter, cut brownies into 2 individual portions and place on small, foil lined baking sheet. See Photo
  • Using 2 small round bowls (the opening being the same diameter as the brownie rounds, line each with plastic, pressing down well (leave access plastic hanging off). Place 3 equal layers of ice cream in each bowl then top with brownie round, slightly pressing down See Photo. Pulling extra plastic wrap from the sides, seal the brownie layer. Freeze cakes and ice cream until very hard, at least 1 hour.
  • While the ice cream freezes, make your meringue:
  • In an electric mixer with the whip attachment, on medium speed, beat together the egg whites and cream of tartar to soft peaks. Continue to beat and add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Whip until meringue has reached stiff peaks. Place meringue in a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.
  • Preheat the oven to broil and place a rack 8 inches from the top of the oven.
  • Remove the ice cream cakes from the freezer. Pipe the meringue evenly over the ice cream, covering completely (don't take too long or ice cream will start to get too soft).
  • Place in the broiler and broil just until tops are browned, about 30 second. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with strawberry coulis and garnish.

    When I was a little girl my Mom had this giant cookbook. It must have been 5" thick, small print and no pictures, but I remember seeing a recipe in there for "Baked Alaska" and always thinking how exotic that bake ice cream. I have always, always wanted to try it but never have. My Sister-in-law now lives in Anchorage. What a fun birthday dessert this would make for her too! :) Gorgeous post as always Luisa.
