Tiramisu – Now that’s Italian!

LAY LADY FINGERS IN A SINGLE ROW ON SHEET PAN
1 cup brewed expresso
1/2 cup brandy
1/2 cup Kahlua
4 dozen lady fingers (2 packages)
Brush this mixture over lady fingers

FILLING
8 egg yolks
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1lb containers of Mascarpone cheese

WHIP TOGETHER:
2 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup granulated sugar

Beat yolk with sugar until pale yellow. Doing this makes this dessert feather light. Gradually beat in mascarpone, add a little of the expresso mixture to batter.

Combine half of whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture and blend.You’ll want this to be as thick as waffle batter.

Grind real coffee beans very fine, add a little cocoa and confectioners’ sugar to the mixture and stir to combine. Sprinkle over top mixed before serving. I piped on more whipped cream before serving. Below is the finished product!
