  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Espresso Mixture:
    • In a shallow dish, combine the brewed espresso or strong coffee. Set aside.
  2. Soak the Ladyfingers:
    • Working one at a time, quickly dip each ladyfinger cookie into the espresso mixture, ensuring it is lightly soaked but not overly saturated. Arrange the soaked ladyfingers in a single layer in the bottom of a 9×9-inch (23x23cm) square baking dish or a similar-sized serving dish.
  3. Prepare the Mascarpone Mixture:
    • In a mixing bowl, beat the softened mascarpone cheese until smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone cheese until evenly combined.
  4. Assemble the Tiramisu:
    • Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the layer of soaked ladyfingers in the dish, using a spatula to smooth it out evenly. Repeat with another layer of soaked ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture.
  5. Chill and Set:
    • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate the Tiramisu for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld together and the dessert to set.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Before serving, dust the top of the Tiramisu with cocoa powder using a fine-mesh sieve. Slice into portions and serve chilled, savoring each decadent bite of this Italian classic.
