Chilled Dessert Recipes | 0 comments

Tortoni is a traditional Italian dessert – the Italian way to serve it is in paper muffin cups. You can make 12 or more servings depending on the size of your muffin cups. For special occasions, freeze it in fancy fluted glasses – like champagne bowls or martini glasses. Then it looks as good as it tastes!
