6 Egg Yolks

3 Tablespoons of Sugar (white granulated)

1 lbs Mascarpone Cheese

1 1/2 Cups of Strong Espresso, cooled

2 Teaspoons of Dark Rum

24 Packaged Ladyfingers

1/2 Cup of Bittersweet Chocolate for Garnish


In a large bowl, using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale (about 5 minutes).

Add mascarpone cheese and beat until smooth.

Add 1 tablespoon of espresso and mix until thoroughly combines.

In a small shallow dish, add remaining espresso and rum. Dip each ladyfinger into espresso for only a few seconds.

Letting the ladyfingers soak too long will cause them to fall apart. Place the soaked ladyfingers on the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish, breaking them in half if necessary in order to fit the bottom.

Spread 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture evenly over the ladyfingers. Arrange another layer of soaked ladyfingers and top with remaining mascarpone mixture.

Cover tiramisu with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to 8 hours.

Before serving, sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
