Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was one that mom cut out of the paper in 1960. It is a very traditional Italian dessert that you don't see much anymore. It is creamy, refreshing and worth the time to make it. We use Trader Joe's almond biscotti instead of macaroons. They add a nutty crunch that compliments the creamy texture of the frozen custard.
