My mother-in-law served this recipe for dessert one evening and immediately after eating this, I had to have the recipe. It is so refreshing and light. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family has.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup chopped pecans

  • cup margarine, melted

  • cup brown sugar


  • 2 cups sliced strawberries

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip®), thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Combine flour, pecans, margarine, and brown sugar together in a bowl until crumbly; transfer to a baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven, stirring often, until crumbs are lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer most of the crumbs to a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  4. Beat strawberries, white sugar, egg whites, and lemon juice together in a bowl using an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 15 minutes. Fold whipped topping into strawberry filling; pour over crumbs.

  5. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over the strawberry filling. Cover dish with plastic wrap and freeze until set, 8 hours to overnight. Cut into squares.
