 Ingredients List

  • 1 qt Vanilla ice cream (2.5 cups)
  • 1 1/2 c Frozen whipped topping,
  • .thawed (3.5 oz)
  • 1 1/2 ts Almond extract
  • 1/2 c + 2T chopped almonds divided
  • 6 -7 maraschino cherries, cut
  • .in half


Line 12 to 13 muffin cups with paper baking cups. In a large bowl, soften
the ice cream. Fold in the whipped topping and mix well. Add the almond
extract and the 1/2 cup almonds; mix well again. Place about 1/3 cup of the
ice cream mixture into each muffin cup. Sprinkle with the remaining
almonds. Cover the muffin cups and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours. Just
before serving, top each with a half a maraschino cherry. Yield= 12-14

NOTE: To soften the ice cream, break it up in a mixing bowl by stirring
with a wooden spoon. Do not let the ice cream reach the melting point. you
know, you can change the "rules" and substitute chocolate or other ice
cream flavors for the vanilla. It might not be the traditional way, but
it'll still be good.. and different.
