Tortoni are a wonderful Italian frozen dessert I remember Grandma making when I was a child and I LOVE them!"This was a tasty treat. It was easy and fast to assemble. I did make a variation by preparing it in a springform pan like a cake and added some glazed almonds to the garnish. Would be great to find a lower fat version of this desert." - jcsimages

Almond Tortoni Preparation
In sauce pan melt butter, add almonds and cook until lightly browned. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla wafer crumbs and almond extract. Reserve 2 tbsps for topping. Fold sugar and rum into whipped cream, add crumb mixture and make sure everything is well blended without collapsing cream. Line mini-muffin tin with paper cups and spoon Tortoni mixture into cups. Sprinkle with reserved crumb topping and top with a cherry half. Place in freezer until firm and cover. Let Tortoni stand at room temperature to soften slightly before serving. Makes 12 mini-cups.
