  • 1

    pound mascarpone cheese, at room temperature

Directions

Ingredients: 1-1/2 cups brewed espresso, at room temperature 1/4 cup brandy or 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 2 tablespoons brown sugar 3 large egg yolks 2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 1-1/4 cups heavy cream 1 pound mascarpone cheese, at room temperature One 7-ounce package crisp Italian ladyfingers (about 24 cookies) Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, scraped with a vegetable peeler to make curls Directions: In a medium bowl, stir together the espresso, 3 tablespoons brandy (or the 1 teaspoon vanilla) and the brown sugar; set aside. In a double boiler, beat together the egg yolks, 2/3 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup cream over simmering water until the mixture lightens in color and thickens, about 7 minutes. Transfer the insert to a larger bowl filled with ice water. Whisk until cold, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the mascarpone and the remaining 1 tablespoon brandy until smooth. Dip half of the ladyfingers, one at a time, into the reserved espresso mixture and lay them flat in a single layer on the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. Spread half the mascarpone mixture on top. Repeat with the other half of the ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Using an electric mixer, beat the remaining 3/4 cup cream and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Spread the whipped cream onto the chilled tiramisu and, using a small strainer, dust the whipped cream with the cocoa. Top with the chocolate curls. Cut into rectangles.
