Tiramisù

Tiramisù

It was hubby’s birthday and tiramisù is his favourite dessert. As I asked him what he would like to have, he went all Puss in boots and made biiiig biiig eyes and asked for tiramisù… I just could not say no 😉 On the other hand, one has to say that it is also a fairly quick dessert to do, you just have to remember to prepare it a day in advance to let it set and to add the cocoa powder just right before serving, otherwise it’ll get wet from the cream below.

Ingredients:

  • 2 boxes of savoiardi biscuits (ladyfingers)
  • 500g mascarpone cheese
  • about 10 soup-spoons of cognac
  • 4 eggs
  • 150g sugar
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • cocoa powder

Method:

  1. prepare the coffee and add half of the cognac and let it rest;
  2. separate the eggs, beat the whites with a pinch of salt and put it in the fridge;
  3. beat the yolks with the sugar until creamy, add the rest of the cognac and the mascarpone cheese and mix to smooth out all the lumps;
  4. add and fold in the egg whites
  5. put a first layer of biscuits in a rectangular pie dish (it’s easier and you’ll have to cut less biscuits to form it), and put a spoonful of coffee on each of them, then add the cream and smooth it out;
  6. continue with the layers until reaching the top of the dish, cover it with clean film and put it in the fridge to set;
  7. before serving dust the top with cocoa powder.
