Raspberry and Pistachio Semifreddo

    6 hours 20 minutes

    This is actually easier than you think to prepare. Fresh raspberries and pistachio nuts are folded into a rich and creamy, honey-sweetened semifreddo. It's a great dessert if you need to impress! Serve garnished with extra raspberries or puree some of the raspberries with a teaspoon of honey and drizzle on top.

    Serves: 6 

    • 6 egg yolks

    1. Combine egg yolks with 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon honey in the large bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment; beat until volume doubles and mixture is pale and creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. Beat cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until firm peaks form, 3 to 4 minutes. Gently fold cream into egg yolk mixture.
    3. Line a loaf pan with baking paper, leaving an overhang on both sides. Pour mixture into the pan, smoothing the top. Cover with cling wrap.
    4. Freeze until semifreddo is chilled, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove from freezer and stir in raspberries and pistachio nuts. Freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
    5. Let semifreddo soften in the fridge before serving, about 15 minutes. Turn out of the tin and cut into slices.
