    • 1/4 cup heavy cream

    • 25 ladyfingers
    • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

    Preparation:30min  ›  Extra time:5hours chilling  ›  Ready in:5hours30min 

    1. In a medium bowl beat together the egg yolks and 1/3 cup of sugar. Using a wooden spoon stir in mascarpone cheese, beaten egg whites, cream and amaretto; stir until smooth. Set aside.
    2. Dissolve remaining 2/3 cup sugar in coffee. Quickly, to avoid complete saturation, dip ends of ladyfingers in coffee mixture. Place ladyfingers in a single layer in a 10x20cm glass baking dish. Spread a layer of cheese mixture over the ladyfingers; repeat layers, ending with cheese mixture.
    3. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Sprinkle with cocoa just before serving.

    This recipe is really tasty and tastes just like the Tiramisu at the Italian Restaurant I work at. However, it needs to chill over-night to make it sit-up properly. Also, the marscapone mixtures is too runny, so the second layer of lady fingers float to the top. I would possibly suggest letting the marscapone mixture chill for awhile before putting ontop of the lady fingers.  -  15 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is so delicious. I skipped the kirschwasser and added about a teaspoon of vanilla. You will not be disapointed!  -  03 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
