Brownie Baked Alaskas

by on March 31, 2008 · 2 comments

I never got around to making Baked Alaska for Seward’s Day, but I did find what appears to be a good recipe. Plus, it’s a great way to use up brownies. This recipe makes 9 little Alaskas, but you don’t have to make all 9.

Brownie Baked Alaskas

1 9 inch pan of brownies (from box okay)
1 1/2 pints good ice cream – most recipe recommend strawberry
4 large egg whites, room temp
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cut brownies into 3-inch squares and arrange them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment for easy removal. Place a scoop of ice cream on top of each brownie and freeze for at least one hour.

Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.

Remove ice cream-topped brownies from freezer. Spread meringue over ice cream, sealing the edge of the brownie. Bake at 500 degrees F for 2 to 3 minutes until lightly browned.

Makes 9
