My mother had asked for me to make a tiramisu for her birthday cake one year and now it has become a tradition.

This is the most fabulous dessert and so very much worth the effort to prepare it!

It's easier than you think and the wow factor is off the charts!

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

6 large
egg yolks
3/4 c
granulated sugar
2/3 c
milk
1 1/4 c
heavy cream
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 lb
mascarpone cheese
1/4 c
strong brewed coffee, room temperature
2 Tbsp
rum
2 pkg
ladyfingers (3 oz. each)
1 Tbsp
unsweetened cocoa

Step-By-Step

1In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Boil gently for 1 minute, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.

In a medium bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form. Whisk mascarpone into yolk mixture until smooth.

In a small bowl, combine coffee with rum. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise and brush with coffee/rum mixture.

Arrange half of soaked ladyfingers in the bottom of a 11 x 7 inch dish. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over ladyfingers, then spread half of the whipped cream. Repeat layers (ladyfingers/ mascarpone mixture/whipped cream). Sprinkle with cocoa.

Cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours until set.
