Pour into large bowl; beat with electric mixer on high speed 8 to 10 minutes or until stiff glossy peaks form. Use small icing spatula to swirl meringue over top of ice cream layer. Freeze at least 3 hours or overnight.

Expert Tips

  • To prevent mixing yolk into the whites, crack eggs, one at a time, and place each white into custard cup to ensure it is free of yolk before transferring to bowl.
  • To soften ice cream, remove from freezer to refrigerator 20 to 30 minutes before needed.
  • Try your favorite ice cream instead of strawberry for a new flavor twist.
