Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

For the crumbled topping:

  • 8-10 Golden Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons freeze-dried strawberries

Instructions

  1. First, line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or wax paper and set aside.

  3. Cover cookie crust with 15 scoops of vanilla ice cream and freeze for 20 minutes.
  4. Make the crumbled topping: Place freeze-dried strawberries into food processor and pulse to make a fine powder. Add Golden Oreo Cookies and pulse to combine. Then add melted butter and pulse again.
  5. Take baking dish out of the freezer and spread 6 scoops of strawberry sorbet on top of vanilla ice cream. Freeze for 10-20 minutes or until set.
