Blue Monday ~ Yummy

How 'bout a quick and easy dessert to take to the next Holiday party?
Seriously. . . This light and fluffy Italian dessert can be simple. Especially if you use my friend Gail's recipe.
Gail's Great Tiramisu
5 eggs
1 cup sugar
16 oz Mascarpone Cheese
1 tsp vanilla (or Brandy)
2 boxes lady fingers
1 cup strong coffee
cocoa powder

Whip the eggs and the sugar for 6 minutes until fluffy. Fold in the Masarpone Cheese and blend until smooth. Add the Vanilla (or Brandy) this takes away the eggy taste.

To assemble . . . quickly dip the lady fingers in coffee.
So it doesn't taste overwhelmingly coffee. Layer ladyfingers in a 8x12 baking dish (or souffle bowl).
Cover with a layer of fluffy mascarpone and repeat ending with fluff. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Sprinkle with cocoa powder just before serving.

Is it any wonder I love hanging out in her kitchen, planning our 2012 Great Escape

Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues.
y'all enjoy~

I can't find soft lady fingers around here!!

I have never made the tradionally flavourted tiramisu so I think it is time to rectify that!

Sandi, don't forget we halved the recipe (since we wanted to eat it ALL!), so that is why we used the square glass pan. The recipe you gave would make enough for a regular 13"X9" pan. I snatched the recipe from YouTube and it is so quick! I think the soft Lady Fingers were too soft....use regular ones! This makes me want to make it again!

i tend to dislike coffee-flavored sweet things, but this is an exception. it's at its best a week later, if you can wait that long!
