    I decided, is time to take out the Christmas tree … first of all because cats make me crazy pulling down all the balls and the second because we’re at the end!
    But first I need to update you on Emiliana’ Christmas cakes and I begin with


    700 gr. Sweet almond
    300 gr. Of bitter almonds
    1 kg. of sugar
    7 egg whites
    10 tablespoons of flour
    1 lemon, grated
    First grind almonds then blend all ingredients  and work well the dough with your hands. Then create small  balls and put in a pan on baking paper. Cooking time 20 -25 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees.

    semifreddo all'amaretto 001


    Ingredients for 8 persons:
    4 eggs
    300 ml double cream
    100 gr. Amaretto biscuits
    50 gr. almond- 4 sheets of gelatine
    1 orange
    Two tablespoons of brandy
    60 gr. Brown Sugar

    Separate the yolks from the whites. Whisk the egg whites with white sugar and a pinch of salt until the mixture is solid, and store in refrigerator. Whisk the  egg yolks, with brown sugar , a sprinkling of cinnamon and a pinch of salt, to obtain a creamy compost. Dissolve the gelatin in a bowl with two tablespoons of hot water and when completely melted add it to the yolks. Whip the cream with a spoonful of white sugar. When set add them to the foam of egg yolks, being careful to stir the mixture from the bottom to the up. And now also add the whipped egg whites, always making sure to mix from the bottom up. Cut the orange  peel into thin strips and blanch them in very thin water for two or three minutes. Drain and cook  in a pan with a tablespoon of brandy and white sugar. Put in the bottom of the molds, the caramelized orange peel, crushed Amaretti biscuits and almond flakes. Pour the mixture and store in freezer for 6 hours before serving.
