Orange Jack-o'-Lanterns with Sorbet
Invite a crew of frozen friends for dessert. Cut off the top quarter of an orange. Scoop out flesh with a spoon, then carve eyes, noses, and grins with a utility knife.
Ingredients: 4 navel oranges2 pints mango, passion-fruit, or orange sorbet, softened
Slice top quarter of each orange, and reserve for lid. Using a grapefruit spoon or paring knife, scoop or cut out interior of oranges. Reserve flesh for another use, such as fresh orange juice.
Create your mini jack-o-lantern by cutting out eyes, nose and mouth with a small carving knife.
Pack each orange with sorbet, and top it with a "lid." Bend floral wire, and poke it in -- not through -- top of orange for tendrils. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, and place in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes. Oranges with sorbet can be frozen for up to 3 days.
I will post the recipe's from the above pictures as soon as I get them.
