It may seem like a strange pairing, but balsamic vinegar complements the flavor of sweet strawberries in this simple ice cream cake. You're welcome to make your own ice cream, but in this case, we're big fans of using our favorite store-bought vanilla ice cream.

  • Line an 8 x 8-inch glass plate with plastic wrap. Pour in the strawberry mixture and freeze until barely firm, about 2 hours. Meanwhile remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften up.

  • Spread the softened ice cream over the firm puree and cover. Freeze until both are firm. To serve, turn out onto a platter, flip to place strawberries on bottom, and cut in squares. Serve each square with a vanilla cookie.

So easy to make an yummy. My kids just love it on a hot summer night for dessert. I use less sugar and they still think it's great.
