biscuit tortoni [bis-ki tor-tony] noun
A frozen dessert sprinkled with macaroon, amaretti crumbs or almonds. Its texture is somewhere between an ice cream and a frozen mousse. Biscuit tortoni flavors may vary, but it typically has an almond taste and is made in small, white paper cases (sturdier than cupcake wrappers). This dessert has been found in the U.S. since the late 1890s.
