This is an Italian dessert from the Mama Leone’s Italian Cookbook.

1/2 cup crushed macaroons
1/2 cup crushed roasted almonds
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 cups heavy cream
3 tbs dark rum
3 or 4 maraschino cherries

Mix the macaroons, most of the almonds, the sugar,
and one cup of the cream together. Whip the remaining
cream and fold it and the rum into the mixture, stirring
gently. Spoon the mixture into paper muffin cups and
freeze.After about two hours sprinkle the tops with
remaining crushed almonds. Place 1/2 cherry in the
center of each cup for decoration. Fills 6 or 8 paper
cups. …. My note: Of course you will need to use a cup cake
tin to hold the muffin cups.

Andy put a whole batch into four flan cups for our dessert
but have seen him use the paper muffin cups when there
were more diners. He also put five whole cherries
in the bigger cup because he likes them.

Wowwwwwww!

The macaroons were coconut macaroons, not macarons, right?
