I'm looking for a recipe for lemon semi freddo. Thought it would be a grand finale to our Christmas Eve crab-fest. Thanks.
Here's one...incredibly basic, I know, but it's good and I make my own lemon curd and use 2 cups for this recipe, so that fancies it up a bit. I skip the coconut macaroons and use crunched up meringues.
Title: Italian Lemon Semifreddo
Yield: 12 Servings
1 cn lemon pie filling
1 c whipping cream; whipped
1 pt lemon sorbet; softened
1 pk soft coconut macaroons;
1. Place pie filling in a large bowl. Fold whipped cream into pie
until nearly blended.
2. Gradually add spoonfuls of sorbet, mixing at low speed until blended.
Reserve 1 cup macaroon crumbs; fold remaining crumbs into whipped cream
3. Pour mixture into 13x9-inch (3 quart) baking dish. Top with reserved
macaroon crumbs. Cover tightly with foil. Freeze at least 4 hours or
overnight until firm.
4. Before serving, refrigerate 1 hour or let stand at room temperature
30 minutes or until slightly thawed. Cut into squares. Store in freezer.
