Just Peachy Baked Alaska Dessert
1 pint vanilla ice cream
3 egg whites
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 can (29 ounces) peach halves, drained
6 purchased sponge cake dessert shells
3 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
Shape ice cream into 6 equal balls; put back in freezer. Let freeze hard before
Preheat oven to 450°.
In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Beat in sugar, a tablespoon at a
time, until meringue stands in stiff peaks. Beat in vanilla.
Place a peach half, hollow side up, on each dessert shell on a baking sheet.
Spoon 1 teaspoon of raspberry jam into each hollow then top with a hard-frozen
ice cream ball. Working quickly, frost each with meringue, spreading to
completely cover and seal ice cream and shell, leaving no gaps.
Bake for about 3 minutes, or just until meringue is golden brown. Serve
Peach Alaska dessert serves 6.
