Diva Tasting: Tiramisu …

I will run a Tiramisu recipe every season every holiday, anytime. I love it. Here is one for the holidays.

Tiramisu 101


6 Egg

1 Cup White Sugar

1 Cup Milk

1 ¼ Cups Heavy Cream

½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1 Pound Mascarpone Cheese, At Room Temperature

1 Cup Ricotta

½ Cup Strong Brewed Coffee or Instant Espresso, At Room Temperature

5 Tablespoons Rum

6 Tablespoons Bailey’s Irish Cream

3 (3 Ounce) Packages Ladyfinger Cookies

3 Tablespoon Unsweetened Cocoa Powder


Step 1 In a medium saucepan, whisk together eggs and sugar until well blended. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil gently for 1 minute, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.

Step 2 In a medium bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form.

Step 3 Whisk mascarpone and ricotta into egg mixture until smooth.

Step 4 In a small bowl, combine coffee, Bailey’s and rum. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise and drizzle with coffee mixture.

Step 5 Arrange half of soaked ladyfingers in bottom of a 9×13 inch dish. Spread half of mascarpone mixture over ladyfingers, then half of whipped cream over that. Repeat layers and sprinkle with cocoa. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, until set.
