Cool, sweet, slightly nutty. An Italian favorite. But Jell-O pudding and pie filling makes it part of your own dolce vita.


Jell-O Pudding Tortoni recipe


1 package (3-1/4 ounce) Jell-O coconut cream pudding & pie filling
1-1/4 cups milk
1/3 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond or rum extract
1/4 cup drained coarsely-chopped maraschino cherries
1 cup heavy cream

Then beat pudding; add almond extract and cherries. Whip cream; fold into pudding mixture.
