Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cups whipping cream heavy
  • 8 ounce cheese mascarpone container at room temperature
  • cup sugar granulated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups espresso cold
  • 3 tablespoons coffee flavored liqueur optional (Kahlua or DaVinci brands)
  • 1 Lady Fingers package, Savoiardi brand can be found in the cookie aisle at your local grocery store, or online
  • Cocoa powder for dusting the top

Instructions
 

  • Add whipping cream to a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed with electric mixers (or use a stand mixer). Slowly add sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until stiff peaks. Add mascarpone cheese and mix just until combined. Set aside.
  • Add coffee and liqueur to a shallow bowl. Dip the lady fingers in the coffee (Don’t soak them–just quickly dip them on both sides to get them wet) and lay them in a single layer on the bottom of an 8×8″ or similar size pan.
  • Smooth half of the mascarpone mixture over the top. Add another layer of dipped lady fingers. Smooth remaining mascarpone cream over the top.
  • Dust cocoa powder generously over the top (I use a fine mesh strainer to do this). Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or up to overnight before serving.

Notes

Alcohol: Tiramisu can be made with or without alcohol. This recipe calls for coffee flavored liqueur because I like that it enhances the coffee flavor, but other options are marsala wine or brandy.
Make Ahead Instructions: Tiramisu is even better when made in advance, allowing the flavors to blend! It will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
Freezing Instructions: Make completely, but don’t dust with cocoa powder. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and then tinfoil and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and dust with cocoa powder a few hours before serving.
