WOW!
We were invited to a dinner party this past weekend and the hostess asked me to make the dessert for 14 guests.

I made this recipe:
Tracy's Living Cookbook: cannoli ice cream cake
with a few changes...
Instead of mini chocolate chips, I had a bag very good of chocolate buttons, so I rough chopped them.
Instead of using a loaf pan, I lined a 9 inch spring form cake pan with plastic wrap, so much easier to unmold and serve for a crowd.
One more thing, I doubled the "crust" portion to 6 biscottis with 4 tablespoons of butter. In fact, I think next time I make this recipe, I'll triple the crust.
I know summer is over and done, but,
who doesn't like Ice Cream?

Thanks Dawgluver,
I did forget to mention that I made 1 1/2 times the recipe so that the 9 inch springform was nearly full.

bucky, this recipe from Cook's Illustrated has the components of a cannoli. Cream, ricotta, chocolate chips, pistachio nuts, orange peel and then the crushed biscotti imitates the shell. I thought it tasted alot like a cannoli.
