Got this recipe from all recipes.com. All the reviews say it's good, so I was tempted to try. And sure enough... This was the best tiramisu I've had. Authentic italian taste! Tip: don't serve right away; it will taste blah. Refrigerate it so the flavors will blend! (I prefer it to be stored overnight.)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil gently for 1 minute, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form. Whisk mascarpone into yolk mixture until smooth.
  3. In a small bowl, combine coffee and rum. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise and drizzle with coffee mixture.
  4. Arrange half of soaked ladyfingers in bottom of a 7x11 inch dish. (If you don't have that, use a 9 (or 10) inch round springform pan.) Spread half of mascarpone mixture over ladyfingers, then half of whipped cream over that. Repeat layers and sprinkle with cocoa. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, until set.
