Twenty some odd years ago when I was a young bride, my culinary repertoire consisted of tuna noodle casserole, spaghetti from a jar, and Shake N Bake pork chips. Then I discovered Bisquick. Over the years I’ve collected probably close to 50 Bisquick recipe booklets from the supermarket check-out. Bisquick gave me the simple recipes and confidence that I needed to take my cooking to the next level. From time to time, I still pull out a box of Bisquick. This Cherry Crumble Tortoni is one such occasion. If you’re looking for a show-stopping cool summer dessert that is easy to prepare, this Cherry Crumble Tortoni is for you!
1 cup Bisquick
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1 cup chilled whipping cream
1 carton (6 oz.) plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 package (3 oz.) cherry flavored gelatin
3 tablespoons miniature chocolate chips
12 maraschino cherries
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine Bisquick, brown sugar, butter and almonds until crumbly, using a fork or pastry cutter. Spread in 13x9x2″ pan. Bake about 15 minutes or until lightly brown, stirring once. Break mixture apart with a fork to form coarse crumbs. Set aside to cool, reserving 1/4 cup crumbs.
2. Whip cream until stiff, blend in yogurt and almond flavoring. Blend in gelatin until well mixed. Fold in remaining crumbs and chocolate chips. Spoon into 12 paper lined muffin cups. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
3. Top with sweetened chipped cream, if desired, and cherry.
