A rich, Italian ice cream dessert made with orange, sugar, eggs, and cream. Great to prepare for a special occasion, as you can make it a few weeks in advance if you need to. I made it for Christmas in the shape of a Christmas tree.

  • Beat egg whites in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl; beat using an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Set aside.

  • Beat cream in a chilled glass or metal bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold into the large bowl with the egg yolk-sugar mixture, followed by the stiff egg whites. Fold orange-gelatin mixture and orange extract into the large bowl with the egg yolk-cream mixture.

  • Pour mixture into a mold and freeze 8 hours to overnight. When it's time to serve, dip mold in hot water to loosen bottom and sides; turn out onto a serving plate. Decorate with orange wedges.
