Easy Tiramisu

Recipe written by The Chef Next Door


Ingredients:

1 cup heavy cream

16 oz. mascarpone cheese

1/4 cup sugar

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

10 oz. espresso or very strong coffee, cooled

24 lady finger cookies

Dark chocolate bar, for grating

Cocoa powder, for dusting


In the bowl of your stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, whip the cream until soft peaks form.


In a large bowl whisk together the mascarpone, sugar and vanilla. Fold in the whipped cream until completely combined.


Pour the coffee into a shallow bowl and lightly dip 12 of the lady fingers into the coffee. Arrange cookies in a single layer in the bottom of an 8-inch baking dish, breaking as necessary. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture on top of the cookies.


Dip the remaining 12 cookies in the coffee and place on top of the first layer, then top with the remaining mascarpone mixture. Using a fine grater, grate the chocolate bar over the top of the dessert, adding as much as you prefer.


Cover the tiramisu with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight before serving. When ready to serve, dust the top of the dessert with cocoa powder and cut into pieces.


Bon Appetit!
