A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.

Coffee Tortoni And Kahlua
This is an easy to prepare make ahead frozen dessert!
3 egg whites, room temperature
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup sugar, divided
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup COLD, strongly brewed coffee divided
2 tablespoons Kahlua liqueur
1 cup toasted slivered almonds or chopped pecans, divided

In a large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar in on high speed until soft
peak stage. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar and beat until stiff peaks form; set
aside.
In a separate bowl (with clean beaters), beat cream with remaining 1/2 cup
sugar and 1/4 cup cold coffee until stiff. On low speed, blend in remaining 1/4
cup of coffee, Kahlua, and 1/2 cup toasted almonds.
Using a rubber spatula, fold in beaten whites. Spoon mixture into 8-inch spring
form pan or into individual dessert dishes. Sprinkle with remaining almonds and
coffee granules. Cover with plastic wrap or foil, place the spring form pan on a
sheet of plastic and set on a pan or dish because it will leak slightly. Freeze
overnight.
To serve, remove sides of spring form pan.
There are several ways you can present this dessert. One way is to cut the
tortoni into wedges (or you can scoop directly from pan) and serve chocolate
ganache alongside, or after you have removed the spring form pan, you can
make decorations directly on the tortoni such as grid marks before serving.
I serve by cutting a wedge, placing it off to the side of the plate, then take
chocolate ganache (recipe below), put it in a squeeze bottle (I use a clean plastic
ketchup bottle with a very small opening) and make a few zigzag moves on the
plate next to the tortoni, add a fanned out strawberry and a fresh sprig of mint.

Chocolate Ganache
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons corn syrup
1 1/2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (use a good quality chocolate)

In a small saucepan over low heat, add cream, corn syrup, and semi-sweet
chocolate; stirring until melted. Place chocolate mixture in squeeze bottle; store
at room temperature until ready to use (this can be made the day before).
When you're ready to use it, place in microwave or hot water to make sure it is
soft enough to use; Test it first on another plate.
