Il Tiramisu'

I feel a bit ashamed when I make a Tiramisu, because it is just too easy... Its rich sweet creamy texture, wrapping around soft cookies drenched in an intense coffee flavor, is just too good to resist…

I ended up having a bit extra, so I baked little Tirimisu custards in the oven...

400 g Mascarpone
100 g Sugar
4 eggs divided
Cocoa powder
400 g of Ladyfinger cookies
2 cups of strong coffee

First, begin with making the coffee and set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks and the sugar until soft and creamy. Then mix in the mascarpone cheese. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until peaks form. When the whites are fluffy, add them to the mascarpone.
Dip each cookie in the coffee and set on a plate. Once the layer of cookies are complete, scoop the mascarpone over them. Continue layering. Finally sprinkle with cocoa as a final touch.
