Tiramisu - Be Italian

I saw the movie Nine and am inspired to live my life in 2010 being Italian! So on the first day of this new year I made the delicious dessert Tiramisu.

INGREDIENTS (all from Trader Joes)
2 boxes Lady Finger Cookies
3 ounces Espresso Coffee
3 ounces Rum
1 1/2 pounds Mascarpone Cheese (3 containers)
1 1/2 cups of Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 72% dark chocolate bar

Cover the bottom of a pan or serving dish with the lady finger cookies. Brush the cookies with the coffee mixture and soaking only half way.
Mix the mascarpone, vanilla, powdered sugar and rum together with a blender until smooth.
Whip the heavy whipping cream until firm. Fold 1 cup into the cheese mixture and layer atop the cookies. Grate the dark chocolate bar and layer atop the cheese mixture.
Prepare next layer. Remaining Cookies and Cheese. Top with the whipped cream and garnish with the chocolate and whole espresso beans.

SERVE in a martini glass for an elegant look.

  1. If you want to make a non alcoholic version, simply use 6 oz of coffee instead.


Thanks for sharing!
