We are big fans of tiramisu, and we order it most of the time when we have dessert out somewhere. But, I never tried to make it till now. It came out REALLY good. Next time I might make everything from scratch like Swathi! Check out her impressive Orange Tiramisu.

  • 24 ladies fingers cookies
  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese
  • 4 egg yolks(room temp)
  • 3/4c sugar
  • 1c heavy whipping cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbs vanilla extract
  • 3/4-1 c strong filter coffee or espresso
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder and chocolate shavings optional

Keep a metal bowl inside the fridge for whipping the cream.

Beat together egg yolks and sugar. Heat it over a double boiler or bain marie, stirring constantly with a whisk until thickened. Remove from heat. Add vanilla.

Stir in half the mascarpone at a time till well blended.

Beat whipping cream with a pinch of salt just until stiff peaks form. Don’t overbeat it or you will get butter pieces and it will separate. Fold this into the custard (egg yolks and mascarpone) mixture.

In an 8×8 dish, begin to layer the ladies finger cookies by dipping the tops into the espresso/coffee then laying flat side down in rows. Next pour over a layer of cream mixture. Repeat with ladies fingers and cream. Then put cocoa powder into a tea strainer and sift it over the top. Keep in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight. Top with chocolate shavings before serving.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
