Author Notes

Semifreddo is a classic gourmet Italian dessert that means half frozen. It is best when it softens a bit when it is taken out of the freezer. This recipe is biscoff cookies and cookie spread and nutella spread with mascarpone cheese and whipped cream as the base. It makes for a great dinner party dessert, one for a party, or for Valentine's Day. —Jenny
