Recipe notes by Elizabeth Gibbs
This dessert is easy to make and looks impressive. To make it extra easy to turn out the ice cream, place a long strip of parchment paper in the tin before lining with clingfilm.
If freezing overnight, transfer the ice cream from the freezer to the fridge a couple of hours before serving. This should help prevent a situation where the ice cream becomes very soft, and perhaps, runny while waiting for the strawberries and shortbread to defrost.
The alternative is to prepare the ice cream and place in the freezer about 2 to 4 hours before it is required, i.e. long enough for the ice cream to set but not so long that the strawberry and the biscuits become frozen.
