Strawberries and Cream Semifreddo

By Pielove, member

May 22nd, 2010

This was a huge hit.  My husband loved it because it is not too sweet.  My daughter said "This is better than Scooter's Frozen Custard"-- and if you live in Chicago, you know that this is truly high praise.  I loved it because it was easy and really showcased the flavors of the strawberries, plus I could make it in advance.  I did have a little difficulty getting it out of the loaf pan-- my daughter went out to the table and announced: "It will be a little while, Mommy is having technical difficulties."  After a quick dip of the loaf pan in a bowl of warm water, the technical difficulties were resolved and dessert was saved!

I agree this has to have many more fruit options, but watch the liquid...more later Posted: 10:00 pm on May 23rd
