Peanut Butter Semifreddo
1 egg yolk extra
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup peanut butter
Place peanut butter, in a bowl, mix it up until really smooth
Place eggs, yolk, vanilla, and sugar in large bowl. Place over saucepan of simmering water, mix with electric mixer about 8 minutes, until egg becomes thick and pale. Remove from heat.
In a seperate medium bowl, whisk the cream until it peaks. Then gently fold in egg mixture. Fold in peanut butter. Stir gently so that all is mixed well.

Note: this semifreddo is really rich, so enjoy in small portions.
Semifreddo: (Italian for "half cold"), is a class of semi-frozen desserts, typically ice-cream cakes, semi-frozen custards, and certain fruit tarts. It has the texture of frozen mousse because it is usually produced by uniting two equal parts of ice cream and whipped cream.
This was my first attempt at this dessert. It was so good!! You all have to try this!!
I had, had this dessert before in Austin, TX at a really great restaurant called Uchi.
Mine was good but Uchi's was better. I'll get better though, this was my first attempt.
Shout out!!!!I got my semifreddo inspiration from a fellow blog, Moogie & Pap. http://moogieland.blogspot.com/
