Coffee Almond Ice Cream Cake

Author/Submitted by: 1988 Gourmet Magazine
Servings: 1
Categories: Cakes / Chocolate / Desserts / Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt

1 1/2  cups  Chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
1 1/2  pints  Coffee ice cream, slightly softened
1  teaspoon  Vanilla
1/2  cup  Almonds, sliced and toasted
1/4  cup  Unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2  cups  Heavy cream, well chilled
1 1/2  cups  Amaretti di Saronna cookies, crushed
    Dark chocolate sauce

In a bowl with a fork, stir together the crumbs and butter until the mixture is well combined. Pat the mixture onto the bottom and 1-inch up the sides of a lightly oiled 8-inch, 2-1/2-inch deep springform pan. Freeze crust for 30 minutes or until firm. Spread ice cream evenly on the crust and return to freezer for 30 minutes or until ice cream is firm. In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream with vanilla until it holds stiff peaks, fold in amaretti thoroughly and spread over ice cream. Smooth top of cake, sprinkle with almonds, and freeze cake for 30-45 minutes, or until top is firm. Freeze cake, covered with plastic wrap and foil, overnight. Just before serving, wrap a warm damp towel around the side of the pan, remove side of pan, and transfer cake to a serving plate. Cut into wedges with a knife dipped in hot water and serve with dark chocolate sauce.

Amaretti are Italian almond macaroons.
