Tiramisu! A Special dessert for the Holidays!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

It's been a while since I've made this treat - its my Husband's favorite so I made it for X-mas.  I like this recipe because it uses the whole egg!

Ingredients

Mascarpone cheese (8 oz)

3 large eggs, separated

5 tablespoons sugar

12-16 ladyfingers

3/4 c espresso

1/4 c Vermouth

cocoa powder (or chocolate shavings)

 

Separate the eggs.  With an electric mixture, blend the sugar and egg yolks until creamy.

 

Add the Mascarpone cheese and mix until smooth

 

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until peaks start to form


Add the egg white mixture to the egg yolk mixture and gently fold together


In a separate bowl, mix the espresso and vermouth.  Dip the lady fingers in the espresso mixture for a couple seconds.  Layer snuggly in a dish, top with half the mixture - repeat.


Chill for a couple hours.  Sprinkle cocoa powder on top before serving.

 


This recipe fits nicely in a glass bread pan.  I get the cheese and lady fingers from Trader Joe's.  Cheese typically comes in 8 oz tubs.  Trader Joe's lady fingers come in a box of 24, wrapped in 4 packets of six.  This bread pan takes 12 lady-fingers nicely.  I do have extra coffee/vermouth mixture as the lady fingers are on the softer side.  
 

You can easily double the recipe for a larger dish, but we are happy with the smaller size! 

Enjoy!
