Whip It, Fold It, Freeze it

May 24, 2015

Really, it’s that simple. If you can whip cream you can make meringue. And, if you can fold them both together with some sugar and ground pistachios you are only a freeze away from something amazing…Pistachio Semifreddo, an Italian frozen dessert that is like homemade ice cream only better because there is no ice cream maker needed. A quick round-up of your ingredients and 20 minutes this afternoon will have you serving this up at tomorrows barbecue. So, get crackin’ and hand me a spoon…I’m goin in.

Who’s been keepin’ this 2007 Gourmet recipe, found here at Epicurious, a secret? I scattered an additional handful of whole shelled pistachios over the top for a little extra crunch and texture. Other than that there was no reason to gild the lily. photos:gp
