  • 1 1/2 pints good quality vanilla ice cream¬†xmasdessert
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Amaretti cookies


Let the ice cream soften at room temperature while you prepare the other ingredients.

Mince the raisins and soak them in the rum for at least 1 hour.

Whip the cream with a whisk in a metal bowl until it holds a definite shape. Fold the rum-raisin mixture and the Amaretti cookies into the whipped cream.

Gradually stir the whipped cream mixture into the ice cream. Spoon this into 6 pretty glasses or dessert dishes and place in the freezer until firm. Decorate with additional Amaretti crumbs.
