directions

  • Chill a 1 quart spumoni mold well.

  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickend (like a pudding).
  • Cool mixture.
  • Place cooled mixture in a freezer tray and freeze until medium hard (about 2 hours).

  • Second Mixture: In Bowl, beat heavy cream and sugar together until stiff.
  • Gently mix in the cherries, orange peel and almonds.
  • Chill the second mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator.
  • Filling Mold: When first mixture is ready (semi-frozen), remove from freezer tray and line the inside of the chilled mold with it.
  • With the back of a spoon, shape a hollow in the middle of the first mixture.
  • Fill the hollow with the second mixture.
  • Cover the top of the mold with plastic wrap or waxed paper, and freeze for about 2 hours (until very firm).
  • To serve, dip mold briefly in warm water and unmold onto a serving plate.
  • Cut spumoni into 6-8 portions.
