Roasted Berry Sundaes

  • Yield: Serves 4


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 6 ounces raspberries (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 6 ounces blackberries (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 carton (14 oz.) vanilla ice cream


1. Preheat oven to 450°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together sugar and lemon zest. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean and add with bean pod to sugar mixture, stirring to combine. Add berries; toss gently to coat. Spread evenly on baking sheet.

2. Roast until berries have released some of their juice and are starting to soften, 8 to 10 minutes; be careful not to scorch.

3. Transfer berries to a bowl to cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Discard vanilla pod. Scoop ice cream into serving bowls and top with berries.
