Viendo en el freezer aun tenia frambuesas congeladas del verano asi que tenia que hacer algo. Pronto se veran las frambuesas de este año.
Asi que hice este Semifreddo, maravilloso. 

Se puede hacer con frambuesas frescas o congeladas.

algunas frambuesas para adornar


Enmantequillar un molde alargado de 9 cm por 25 cm.
Forrar con papel mantequilla.

Mezclar la cascara rallada de limon, el jugo y el azucar en una pequeña olla hasta que el azucar se disuelva, darle solo un hervor.
Retirar del fuego y dejar enfriar unos 10 minutos.
Pasar por colador el jugo deimon para retirar los residuos.

Batir las yemas de huevo en un bol con una batidora electrica hasta que este suave y espumosa.
Agregar el jarabe de limony el licor, llevar a un bowl grande.
