Easy Dessert for the Holidays

The other day I was in a store and saw something we eat at Christmas time in Brazil: Panettone! Of course I had to buy one. Like fruit cakes, Panettones have dried fruit, but they are bread. If you don't like dried fruit, you can use the Panettone made with chocolate chip. So I'm posting today a recipe given to me by a Brazilian young lady. It is a very easy and delicious dessert made using the best of two worlds: Brazil and the US. Enjoy!

Panettone Dessert

Ingredients: 
1 Bauducco Panettone (the one in the picture weighs 17.2 oz - 500gr, but you can use a bigger one)
You favorite ice cream - I like Peppermint Stick or Mint with Chocolate chip

Using a bread knife, make a hole in the middle of the Panettone about 5.5 of circumference (wider for bigger Panettone), and as deep as the Panettone.
Fill the hole with ice cream and put it in the freezer for 2 hours or until time to be served. 
When ready, slice the Panettone with ice cream and serve. 

Make something different for you family these holidays. Who knows? It might become a tradition.
