Classic Tiramisu


A classic pick me up dessert.
Every Italian household has prepared or devoured this wonderful dessert that has delicate biscuits soaked in alcohol flavoured espresso.
Ready to prepare in minutes and oh so delish!
Sometimes special occasions call for special desserts.
This dessert is spectacular without the fuss.

Here's what you'll need:

1 1/2 pkg of Savoiardi biscuits or lady finger
1 1/2 cup brewed, cooled espresso
500g tub Mascarpone
3 tbsp. sugar
1/8 cup kalua, rum or amaretto liquor
2 lg. eggs separated
1 tbsp. of cocoa

Beat egg whites in a stand mixer bowl to firm peaks
Remove to another bowl.

In the same bowl beat yolks on high for 2-3 min to a light lemon colour. Pour in the sugar and continue beating until no sugar granules remain.

Add the cheese.

Beat for 3-5 min. on medium high until fluffy.

 Fold the egg whites into the cheese mixture.
Set aside.
Mix the coffee and liquor together in a vessel.
Dip each cookie and place along sides of a springform pan.
If needed cut the ends to fit the size you would like.
Use the ends to fill in the bottom and any spaces.
 Spread half of the cheese filling to the edges.

 Repeat until you reach the top of the pan.

 Sprinkle with cocoa powder.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Enjoy with love!
