Strawberry Chocolate Chip Sundaes
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 pints chocolate chip ice cream, slightly softened
Reserve 1 cup of sliced strawberries. Combine remaining strawberries, sugar, lemon zest and 1/4 cup water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often, until berries are softened, about
5 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and pulse once or twice to make a chunky sauce. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled. Combine ice cream and reserved strawberries in a large bowl and mash ice cream with back of a large spoon until strawberries and ice cream are well combined. Cover bowl with plastic and return to freezer to firm up, at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day. Divide ice cream among 6 sundae dishes and top each portion with chilled strawberry sauce. Serve immediately.
