In the spirit of making authentic Italian food, I also made an Italian dessert called Torta Sbrisolona. It is a like a huge almond cookie. If you love the almond flavor, like I do, then you will really like this dessert. It is very light and not too sweet. I made a raspberry glaze to go on top of the Torta that compliments the almond flavor very well. I love the combination. It is very good. This is the best thing I think came from Italy. This dessert, pizza, and lasagna. When you make the Chicken Trombino, you should make the Torta Sbrisolona as your dessert. I promise you won’t be disappointed. It is the perfect meal combination for a date night. If you are wondering what to make and want to impress your date, then you can’t go wrong. Make sure you get some ciabatta bread, make a nice salad, and pick a nice bottle of wine.
Oh I should also mention, that when you make this dessert, it requires you to blanch the almonds first. I have inserted a short video that demonstrates how to do this successfully. Let me know what you think!
