Parmesan Gelato

This is a very simple hors d’oeuvres that I had a Piatti years ago and it is a show stopper!!

Heat up 1 cup of heavy cream until hot and add 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Stir until melted. Pour into a shallow dish or pie plate and refrigerate.

Reduce 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar until syrupy.

With a melon baller scoop a round of parmesan gelato and place on a cracker. Top with a small drizzle of balsamic and garnish with chiffonade of basil leaves.
