Tiramisu

A delightful dessert, that gets better the day after its made!

TIRAMISU



500 grams Mascarpone Cheese
3 whole eggs
3 tablespoons sugar
 1 pinch salt
1 or 2 packages of Lady fingers (hard biscuits)
sugarless cocoa powder (for sprinkling)
4 cups brewed Espresso coffee
2 tablespoons Marsala Liquor

Make coffee and put some sugar in it (not so bitter) and then the liquor. Set aside and let it cool.

Seperate yolks from the whites.

In a bowl, mix the yolks with the sugar, whipping until its very creamy. Add the Mascarpone and mix.

Whip the whites with a pinch of salt until they're firm. Add to the yolks mixture and gently fold in order to keep the whites airy and fluffy.

Put some of the cooled coffee in a dish, grab the biscuits, and roll them in it. [make sure its quick--you don't want them so soft it'll taste like mush!] Roll one at a time, putting them in a serving [9x13-inch] dish in a single layer.

When the pan is covered with the biscuits, smear half the cream on it. Sprinkle a bit of the cocoa over the cream--no white spots!

Continue rolling the remaining biscuits in coffee, making another layer. Smear the rest of the cream, leveling it out on top. Sprinkle more of the cocoa powder--no white spots again! Cover and put it in the fridge.

 
Let it cool for a few hours then serve! Again, its better the day after!

I love tiramisu. It's one of my favorite desserts. I've never made the traditional version like this because I've never been able to find marscapone in my area. I've substituted cream cheese which isn't the same but still OK. I'm going to keep searching though. Thanks for sharing it on Sweet Indulgences Sunday. Kim
