    As a New Yorker growing up in the early 60's, but going to prep school in CT. I used to come home every other weekend. Before taking the New Haven RR from Grand Central, we would have dinner at GENO's restaurant on 3rd. Ave, one block from Blomingdales. I ordered the same thing every time. Clams Casino, Manacotti, and a Biscuit Tortoni. The way I remember the tortoni, it was indeed in a fluted paper cup, but the topping was a bit different. It was more like a granulated almond sugar sprinkled evenly on top with a cherry halve in the middle. There is a couple of bakery stores in Brooklyn that still make them that way. Nastos (?) or something like that was one. I don't think they ship outside of NY area, and having been living in San Francisco I will have to make tortonis myself. Thanks for the recipe, and does anyone know WHY they are not everywhere anymore??

    Also, love the history lessons. Wish I would have seen this before I got everything for Tiramisu-love almond flavored w cherry! now, I need to go find my old Mob Hits cd w Sinatra & other great Italian music-used to listen to it twenty years ago making Italian food before & after my first son was born. Great video! Thank you!

    Would a powdered sugar work instead of messing w the syrup?

    While watching your Tiramisu recipe-I noticed you used the cream of tartar. My grandmother told me to use it doing egg whites as well because I always hated doing "meringues". Nobody else seemed to use this, so I decided on your video out of all. I am terrified of the egg yolk thing, but knowing I have eaten a lot of Tiramisu from Italian restaurants, I am probably sure I have eaten them anyways. Very thorough-and almond desserts & amaretto are probably one of my favorites along w mousse. This has to be awesome! I am trying it tomorrow!

    Love your videos…Sinatra, your humor, and even the cleft in your chin. My favorite comment was "if they don't like garlic, why are they in your life anyway?"

    I am SO excited to come across this recipe! I remember Tortoni from the time I lived in Utica, NY. Since moving to California I've yet to find it, but even after more than 50 years the taste still lingers on my tongue. I plan to try this recipe next week when my older son visits me. I can hardly wait. Thank you so much.

    My mother made these for us all the time – – or not ALL the time – – but they were left in our freezer like the ones you would eat. Ohhhh… what a treat!

    Good Morning Joe…I found your channel purely by accident, but I'm sure glad I did. I was telling my two grown , married children this Christmas Eve (during our traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes) about this wonderful desert we enjoyed many years ago in the Bronx called Biscuit Tortoni. So I started searching the web and and found your video. BINGO!! We will be having this for our New Year's Eve desert… Your instructions are clear, easy to follow and your presentation is very enjoyable. Just wanted to say "THANKS" for posting this and bringing back some truly wonderful memories of the good ol days!! Subscribed and look forward to viewing many more of your vids very soon… God Bless and best wishes for 2016!
