Tiramisu


My brother in law's birthday was this past weekend and I made Tiramisu.  I thought it would be pretty to serve them in large wine glasses.  They're perfect serving size...well double the serving size, but you can't have too much Tiramisu.

I like this recipe because it really has very simple ingredients.  The only thing that needs cooking is the egg, marscapone, and whipped cream, although that is really optional. But I like to heat the egg/sugar mixture just to be safe.

Here are the ingredients:


  • 2 cups dark coffee
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 16 lady finger cookies
  • 2 tablespoon dark cocoa powder


First make a coffee dip for the cookies:

1. Make 2 cups of extra strong coffee, the stronger the better, and add 1/4 Kahlua or your favorite coffee liquor.

Second, make the cream:

1. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks, you will only need the egg yolks.
2. Add 1/4 cup sugar to the egg yolks and beat on top of a double boiler or steamer until creamy.
3. Take the egg mix away from the double boiler or steamer and continue mixing until cool.
4. Add 8 ounces of mascarpone to the egg mixture and mix well.
5. In a separate bowl, whip up 1 cup heavy whipping cream until it forms soft peaks.
6. Add the whipped cream to the egg/mascarpone mixture and fold well.

Third, put the Tiramisu together:

1. Cut the lady fingers to fit your container.
2. Dip each lady finger into the coffee mixture and lay into the container.
3. Put a layer of cream on top of the lady fingers.
4. Dust the cream with dark cocoa powder.
5. Repeat the layers: lady fingers, cream, cocoa powder.
6. For the final layer, dust generously with cocoa powder.

Fourth, chill:

1. Chill the Tiramisu for at least 2 hours before serving.

Fifth, enjoy your delicious Tiramisu.
