Semifreddo is Italian for “half-cold.” It has traditionally been achieved by mixing cream with a meringue made from egg whites. The taste and texture of semifreddo has been compared to mousse, and it melts in the mouth quicker than ice cream. You can play around with the fruit or nuts you want to add. Have fun!

Ingredients (8)

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare Dessert

  1. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.

  2. Combine honey, sugar, and water in a small but heavy-bottomed saucepan.

  3. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves and syrup is clear.

  4. Raise heat and bring syrup to a boil.  Boil without stirring for two minutes. Remove from heat.

  5. Slowly and carefully beat the hot syrup into the egg whites, pouring in a thin stream. Continue beating until the meringue has cooled, about five minutes.

  6. In a separate bowl, beat the cream with the almond extract until it reaches the consistency of sour cream. 

  7. Fold the cream and almonds into the meringue. Gently fold in remaining ingredients. 

  8. Place in a freezerproof container and then cover and freeze overnight.

Variation:

For a dairy version, use heavy cream instead of non-dairy creamer.

You can also use 3/4 cup pomegranate arils instead of the dried cherries.

    Dear Estee, or kosher.com editor, Please read the directions given for this Passover semifreddo recipe. Something is wrong. I'm sure there are a few steps missing. I'd like to make this dessert. Please complete and post! Obviously (today is 2 Nissan, 5777) time is of the essence. I hope you respond quickly! PS I notice there's a bug in your system. It doesn't allow me to post this question without using one of the suggested tags which are downright strange. I chose the tag "graceful". Please note: I am aware this tag makes no sense but I preferred it to other suggestions such as wrteched and tomatoes!
