Your friends and family will love my tiramisu recipe. It's easy to make and I guarantee it will be the Best Tiramisu you've ever had! Can you believe that this classic dessert can be made in 30 minutes?
Combine egg yolks and sugar in the top of a double boiler, over boiling water. Reduce heat to low, and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. This is your sabayon, remove from the heat and whip yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Allow to cool briefly before mixing in mascarpone.
In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer whip cream to stiff peaks. (hand mixer or stand mixer is fine)
Arrange the ladyfingers in the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish (or container similarly sized)
Spoon half the mascarpone cream filling over the ladyfingers.
Add another layer of tiramisu cream
Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Overnight is best.
***If you can't find Mascarpone in your stores. You can make this substitute. It won't be exactly the same but it will come close.
8 ounces full fat cream cheese, 1/4 cup whipping cream and 2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter, whip until it's just blended. This will give the equivalent of around 1 1/4 cups mascarpone.
Soak the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture briefly. Don't let them get soggy, it will ruin the dessert.
Only use Crunchy SAVOIARDI (ITALIAN LADYFINGERS) Cake style ladyfingers will get too soft.
