A little rum, a little fruit, a little nuts - great way to top off a good Italian meal. Cook time is freeze time. NOTE ON TOPPINGS: No exact amounts of stemmed cherries, macaroons or pistachio nuts were given in the original recipe. Garnish according to personal taste.

  2. Repeat with pistachio ice cream.

Sorry, but it is difficult to rate or review your recipe as written due to an incomplete quantity in your list of ingredients. Re: 1/4 (?) maraschino cherry or golden raisin. Please revise. I am looking forward to trying your recipe as I cannot always find Spumoni available and do enjoy it when I can. It is delightful served with a claret sauce. Thank you Julie B's Hive.
