Tiramisu - My Ultimate Recipe
Nothing says Italian more than a rich Tiramisu! It is my addiction. My family knows that I prefer Tiramisu to any other food in the world. And it took me years to create the best Tiramisu recipe, one I've kept secret for many years. And now I'll share it with you!
Mirella's Tiramisu Recipe
2 to 3 packages lady fingers
3/4 cup espresso coffee
3 tablespoons Sambuca or Anisette
1 cup mascarpone cheese
3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
6 tablespoons sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
Combine the espresso and sambuca/anisette and set aside.
Combine the mascarpone in a large bowl and beat until smooth
In a medium bowl, beat the egg yolks and 3 tablespoons of the sugar together until smooth.
Set over a hot water bath and beat for 3 minutes until light and foamy.
Remove from the heat and beat this immediately into mascarpone mixture. Set aside.
Whip the cream until the cream holds a firm shape.
Fold in the vanilla.
In two small additions, fold 1/3 of the mascarpone mixture into the whipped cream.
