I prepared these for my girlfriend and I for Valentine's Day, 2007. Easy to make, and visually stunning, this cherry tiramisu can be served in martini glasses, as a perfect finish to a perfect meal. Note that the cherry sauce should be made a few hours earlier, as it will need time to cool in the fridge.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the cherry sauce, bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan.
  2. Add as much sugar as will dissolve into the water, then add the Amaretto and lemon juice.
  3. Just before it starts to boil, add the cherries, and stir it over a high heat until the liquid takes on the color of the cherries.
  4. Reduce the heat, and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  5. Place the mixture in a small bowl, cover tightly, and place in the fridge.
  6. To make the coffee cream, simply combine the cheese, Kahlua, and coffee in a bowl, and stir until the mixture is uniform in color.
  7. Add sugar to taste, if necessary.
  8. Once the cherry sauce has cooled, arrange the three components in layers in a martini glass, with the biscuit crumbs on the bottom, cherry sauce in the middle, and coffee cream on top.
  9. Refridgerate until the coffee cream is firm.
  10. Decorate with powdered sugar, and place a cherry on top.

I made this last night and made one change as the coffee cream part wasn't strong enough for my taste I added more coffee. Over all it turned out good, a little dry though, next time I'll try adding a little whipped cream to the coffee cream part. Hubby loved it so I'll have to make it again.
