Easy Tiramisu Recipe (Prepare In just 10 Minutes)
Adapted from KitchenNostalgia.com
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature (see substitute idea below)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Amaretto liquor or Brandy (optional but yummy!)
1 and 1/2 cups espresso or STRONG coffee at room temperature – sweetened if desired
1 package Lady Fingers (such as the Savoiardi brand; found in cookie aisle)
Cocoa powder for dusting the top
1 cup Mascarpone Cheese Substitution: Cream together 6 oz. softened cream cheese, 2 Tablespoons sour cream, and 3 Tablespoons heavy cream
Directions: Beat whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form in a medium bowl. Stir in mascarpone cheese and amaretto. Dip lady fingers in coffee and place in an 8×8 pan to make the first layer – you can fit about 7 cookies in each layer. Spread half of the whipped cream mixture on top of first layer of lady fingers. Repeat process with second layer of lady fingers and cream mixture. Dust the top of dessert with cocoa powder using a sifter or hand held kitchen strainer tool. Refrigerate for about 4-8 hours (it gets even better in the fridge and is a perfect make-ahead dessert). Serves about 6.
My Tips: I’ve made this recipe twice (love my job! 😀 ) – do not make the mistake of soaking ladyfingers too long in the coffee because they will get mushy and fall apart. If you enjoy drinking your coffee a little sweetened, then consider sweetening the coffee. If you are serving a crowd, you can easily double this recipe and place in a larger 9×13 baking dish.
