Homely and deceptively simple. But don’t tell that to anyone else…
Method for Puree:
Cut strawberries in half.
In a saucepan over hulled medium heat, combine strawberries, sugar and vanilla essence, stirring continually until sauce thickens about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat, cool and puree 1/3 of mixture then mix back into remaining strawberries. Store in refrigerator.
Method for Pie:
Use a food processor to blitz the biscuit to a crumble, mix with melted butter and use immediately.
Line a 8 inch cake tin with glad wrap and build your pie crust as thin or thick as you desire.
Take the Kāpiti Vanilla ice cream out of the freezer and leave to soften slightly, about 10 minutes until it’s soft but not melted.
Mix through the strawberry puree and place in the pie tin on top of the crust.
Freeze for at least one hour or overnight, remove from the tin, and serve with cream and extra strawberries or fruits of your choice.
