Something chilly after a lovely meal sound like something that's right up your alley? If you're looking for a palate cleanser that will help with your digestion and get you back in the saddle in the hot summer months, we've got you covered with this excellent take on the traditional sorbets, or sorbettos as we call them in my family.
This will be a refresher for the Adult Table (hello, alcohol!) for any family get-togethers you might be hosting, so be sure to have some other gelato or chilly iced treats on hand for the younger tables before breaking out this beautiful iced Italian recipe - this almond dessert is so good it's definitely going to inspire envy for those without a lovely dessert to end those summer meals.
If almonds are a favorite of your family's, you might also love making classic Tuscan Cantuccini biscuits, the perfect snack and treat for any occasion.
