Classic Tiramisu


-6 egg yolks

-3 TBSP sugar 

-1 pd Mascarpone cheese

-1 ½ cups strong espresso cooled

-2 TBSP dark rum-I used my favorite Italian liqueur Disaronno

-24 pack of lady fingers

-unsweetened cocoa powder




In a large bowl using an electric mixer, with the whisk attachment, beat eggs and sugar until they are thick and pale (5 min).  Add the Mascarpone and beat until smooth.  Add 1 TBSP of espresso and mix until thoroughly combined.  In a small shallow dish add the remaining espresso and the rum.  Dip each lady finger into the espresso/rum mixture for a few seconds.  Don’t soak for too long.  Place the soaked lady fingers in a baking dish.  Spread ½ the Mascarpone mixture over the lady fingers. Arrange another layer of soaked lady fingers and top with the remaining Mascarpone mixture.  Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Sift unsweetened cocoa powder on top.
