I've been wanting to try my hand at tiramisu for a while now. I found a couple of easy recipes and kind of combined them. Although it doesn't look awesome in the picture, it came out quite tasty. Next time I will refrigerate it longer before I serve it. Definitely one I will make again.
200 mL heavy cream
5 tablespoons sugar
4 egg yolks
500 g mascarpone cheese (*See after for a mock mascarpone cheese recipe.)
200 g ladyfingers
4 tablespoons strong espresso
4 tablespoons amaretto
Whip the cream and 1 tablespoon sugar until stiff. Mix egg yolks with rest of sugar until creamy. Add mascarpone. Then stir in whipped cream on lowest mixer setting. Line square baking dish with ladyfingers. Mix espresso and amaretto and trickle generoulsy over ladyfingers. Spread a layer of cream over ladyfingers. Repeat with remaining ladyfingers and cream. Dust with cocoa powder. Refigerate at least 6 hours.
12 oz. cream cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup cream
Allow cream cheese and butter to reach room temperature. Beat until butter is mixed in. Add cream and beat until well blended.
*Makes 500 g of mascarpone cheese
