Real Italian Tiramisu

This is not my own recipe. I found this on Youtube, tried it, and my family absolutely loved it! I enjoy the way this website works, so I wanted to add it to the website! Here is the description and the link to the video online: Tiramisu is a traditional Italian dessert. It requires no baking. It's mostly a technique of beating, mixing, and assembling, using some cookies ( lady finger cookies ) and some eggs, yolk and whites separated, mascarpone cheese ( similar to cream cheese ) espresso or coffee, sugar, cinnamon, chocolate, etc. Did you know, according to most accounts, it was invented in a brothel? Tiramisu literally means "pick me up" or "pull me up". That's what it was intended to do for the clients. Despite it's sordid past, it's well loved around the world, and not so difficult to make. Chef Tony will walk you through it in this video recipe and also tell you a little about it on the way. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uL6LW6YWbBY By Chef Tony

ingredients

directions

  • Prepare the espresso, liquor, and vanilla extract first so it has time to completely cool.
  • Separate the whites from the egg yolks in two separate mixing bowls.
  • Use a mixer to whip egg whites till stiff and liquid is gone.
  • Mix your egg yolks with sugar and whip those into a smooth creamy texture.
  • Add your mascarpone to the yolk and sugar mixture and mix at slow speed.
  • Gently fold your yolk/mascarpone mixture with the whipped egg whites. Go slow so you don't lose the fluffy consistency.
  • Assembly! Using a 13x9 pan, put down a thin layer of cream mixture, then a layer of cookies. Each cookie must be quickly dipped in espresso/liquor mix. Note: do not let them soak. Just a quick submerge.
  • Add another layer of cream mixture, cookies, and then top with final layer of cream.
  • Let sit for 24hrs for the best tasting tiramisu experience! Minimum is 8hrs.
