Tiramisu Recipe

Tiramisu is a decadent creamy dessert originating from Italy. In Italian, its name literally means, “pick me up.” That describes this tiramisu recipe perfectly, referring to its high-energy ingredients, strong coffee and sugar. It has become a favorite in European and American restaurants.

Ladyfingers can be very difficult to find in the typical American grocery store. You can replace them with pound cake, biscotti, sponge cake, vanilla cookies, or angel food cake. To cut down on calories, you can trade the mascarpone cheese for skim milk ricotta. Tiramisu’s flavors taste even better when they’ve had a chance to blend overnight. Make this dessert the day before you serve it.



1/2 pound mascarpone cheese
3 egg yolks
1 package ladyfingers
4 Tablespoons sugar
4 Tablespoons brandy
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 cup strong espresso coffee, cooled

1. Beat cheese, egg yolks, 2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 Tablespoons brandy.

4. Dip ladyfingers in espresso mixture and line dish. Alternate layers of ladyfingers and cream; ending with cream.
