Frozen Biscuit Tortoni
A delicious, easy-to-make bite of nostalgia.
Why This Recipe Works
Biscuit tortoni is an easy, frozen, custardlike dessert with a delicate almond flavor. For a light, airy texture, we beat an egg yolk and sugar together in a double boiler on the stovetop and then seasoned the mixture with sherry and vanilla. Once the mixture was fully cooled, whipped cream and ground amaretti cookies were added to help bind it and create a fine crunch. A maraschino cherry on top turns this easy dessert into a special treat.
