(Makes 3 - 7 oz. Individual desserts)

These individual Tiramisu desserts are so delicious and they come together in minutes.   I love to flavor the espresso with a little chocolate liquor. It gives the perfect hint of chocolate.

Note…if you don't want to make the individual desserts you can make it in a dessert pan.  I use a 9 x 6 pan. But instead of 12 lady fingers that are needed for the individual dessert you will need 17.


3 Egg Yolks

2 Tbsp. Sugar

1 Egg White

1 Cup Mascarpone

1 Cup Espresso

2 tbsp. Chocolate Liquor

12 Lady Fingers- broken in half

Cacao For Dusting the top


In a bowl, using a hand mixer, beat the egg white until it thickens and becomes stiff peaks. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks and sugar and beat for about 5 minutes.  It will thicken.  Then add the mascarpone and combine well.  Fold the egg whites into the mascarpone mixture.

Add the liquor to the espresso and combine.

Lay out the three small cups to assemble the tiramisu.  Take a lady finger and break in half dip in the espresso and put one layer in the bottom of each cup. Top each with a little of the mascarpone mix.  Then dip another layer of the lady fingers and put a layer in each cup.   Top each cup with a second layer of mascarpone.  Dust each dessert with the cacao.  Refrigerate for at least an hour and serve.
