Stawberry-Vanilla Swirled Frozen Pops

I was just going through the old issue of Gourmet Magazine (May 2009) and saw the most delicious looking desert that I am definitely going to try to make! They are called "Strawberry-Vanilla" Swirled Frozen Pops. Enjoy!!


Serves 12 Active prep time: 15 min. Start to finish: 1 1/2 hours Ingredients: 1lb Strawberries, hulled and halved 1/2 Cup Sugar 2 tsp fresh lemon juice 2 pints premium vanilla ice cream Equipment: 12 (1/3 cup) ice pop molds or 12 paper cups and 12 wooden sticks
Preparation:


1.Mash strawberries in a large bowl with a potato masher or a fork. Transfer to a 12-inch nonstick skillet along with sugar and lemon juice and boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, then freeze, uncovered, until cold, about 10 minutes.

2. Transfer ice cream to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 30 percent power in 10-second intervals, stirring, until softened, about 50 seconds total. Spread evenly in a 13- by 9-inch baking dish and freeze while strawberry mixture chills.

3. Dollop tablespoons of strawberry mixture all over ice cream, then swirl it gently through ice cream with a spoon. Spoon into molds (or into cups) and add sticks. Freeze until firm, about 1 1/4 hours (and up to 4 days, covered).


Cooks’ note: If you don’t want to make pops, freeze strawberry-topped ice cream until firm, then scoop into bowls.
