This is the best tiramisu you'll ever have! It's fluffier than the traditional version. Can be doubled, and makes a pretty presentation in a trifle dish or glass baking dish. The perfect Christmas dessert. As a bonus, it is something that you make ahead, so less fuss on Christmas day!

1 package lady fingers
1 cup espresso
1/4 Kahlua (suit to taste)
drop of scotch (this eliminates the egg taste)
2 egg yolks
2 T sugar
1 cup mascarpone cheese
1 cup heavy whipping cream
cocoa powder

  1. In small bowl combine coffee, Kahlua, scotch (if doubling, you won't need to double this part). Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until foamy. Add mascarpone cheese to egg mixture.
  3. In a third bowl, whip heavy cream. Fold whipped cream into egg/cheese mixture.


Like a lasagna, this is arranged in layers. Two layers for single recipe, three layers for double:
  1. Dip each lady finger in coffee mixture, layer in trifle dish. (Or layer lady fingers, then sprinkle with coffee mixture).
  2. Sprinkle coffee-dipped ladyfingers with cocoa powder.
  3. Spread half (or third) of cheese mixture.
  4. Once layers are complete, sprinkle with more cocoa powder.
  5. Refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.

The Tiramisu! This is a double recipe.
