Semifreddo is an Italian frozen dessert that is served frozen hard on the inside but softened on the outside. Freeze the whole bowl and scoop it out as you would ice cream, portion it before freezing, or pack into a loaf pan lined with plastic wrap and cut into slices after it’s frozen. Any way you serve it, let it temper (stand at room temperature for a few minutes) to soften a bit before serving.
