T is for Tiramisu - one of the nicest desserts I know!
There are many recipes around the world- this is the one I use:
3 egg yolks
1 tub of Mascarpone (an Italian cream cheese)
2 egg whites
150 ml very strong coffee
3 tablespoons Amaretto (or brandy, or dark rum)
24 Lady fingers (a sponge biscuit)
50 g dark, chopped chocolate
1 tablespooon cocoa powder
First, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Next whisk the egg yolks and suger until pale and creamy. Gradually whisk the Mascarpone cheese into the egg mixture and lightly fold in the egg whites. Pour the coffee and Amaretto into a shallow dish and dip the biscuites into it. Now put some halved biscuites into stemmed glasses, followed by a layer of the Mascarpone mixture and some chocolate. Repeate once or twice and finish with a layer of chocolate and dusting of cocoa powder. Chill in the refrigerator for some hours - and enjoy!!
Of course you can make the Tiramisu in a cake tin as well!
