Summer is in full swing with plenty of sunshine, picnics, barbecues and cookouts still to be enjoyed. Today we partner with Chapman’s Ice Cream to bring you this super easy dessert idea for summer…or anytime really.
Easy and simple is always best.
What’s great about recipes like these, is that they transform just a few quality ingredients into something truly special. Add to that the fact that you do not need to bother making your own pastry and you are definitely onto a winner.
This is also a great recipe to make, even days in advance of any event, or just a special family dinner. It can be a bit of a life-saver to have on hand in the freezer too, when you suddenly need dessert at short notice.
Ice cream in blocks always makes me think of my dad who was the grocery shopper in our house when I was a kid. I think it may have been because slicing the portions instead of scooping meant there were fewer arguments between 6 kids over unequal servings!
Food, memories and celebration are always connected in our home as I am sure they are for Chapman family who have run their family ice cream business since 1973. You can read all about the story of Chapman’s Ice Cream on their website here.
Their website is full of great information for parents like recipes, party tips, and nutritional information. I was amazed to find they had such a huge product range, including treats for folks with various dietary restrictions. Gluten free, peanut free, lactose free and diabetic products are all available from Chapman’s! …and all those flavours…it’s an ice cream lovers dream.
Blocks are better!
Ice cream blocks also comes in handy for recipes like this. Slicing the ice cream makes it much easier to add between the layers, making the whole process quicker and easier. Win, win!
In this recipe I’ve chosen Chapman’s Strawberry Ice Cream, but you can basically use any flavour you like, or mix and match complimentary flavours of ice cream and jam to create your own version.
There are only the limits of your imagination, especially given the wide array of great flavours available from Chapman’s.

- 1 pound package frozen puff pastry
- 2 litres Chapman's Strawberry Ice Cream
- 1 cup strawberry jam (approximately)
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 2 tbsp icing sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Strawberries for garnish (optional)
To prepare the pastry
- The puff pastry I use comes in a package of two square sheets. Roll out each of the puff pastry sheets into about 9 inch squares.
- Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. You may have to bake these one at a time depending on the size of your cookie sheet.
- Dock the pastry by stabbing holes in it with a fork about every half inch over the entire surface of the pastry. Chill it in the freezer for 10 minutes to ensure that it is well chilled. Puff pastry MUST be baked very cold.
- Place another sheet of parchment paper on top of the pastry and weight it down with another cookie sheet on top. This keeps the pastry from puffing too much and ensures that it is crispy when baked.
- Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Decrease the heat to 375 degrees F, remove the top pan and top sheet of parchment paper and bake for about another 5-7 minutes or so until it is evenly medium golden brown throughout.
- Cool the baked pastry sheets completely before filling.
To construct he mille feuille ice cream cake.
- Cut the 2 squares of baked pastry in half.
- Spread jam evenly over 3 of these pastry layers.
- Cut about 1 inch thick slices of Chapman's Strawberry ice cream from the block and cover the 3 jam covered pastry pieces with the ice cream slices.
- Stack all three layers on top of each other on a serving platter and top with the final layer of pastry.
- Place the cake in the freezer and leave to get very firm for several hours or overnight. You can trim the edges to even them up, once the cake is frozen if you like.
- When ready to serve, top with the Vanilla Whipped Cream and garnish with strawberries if you like.
To prepare the Vanilla Whipped Cream
- Simply beat the whipping cream, icing sugar and vanilla to firm peaks.
Additional time noted in this recipe is for freezing time after the cake is constructed for a minimum of 3 hours. Freezing overnight is recommended.
