  1. Beat cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until thick. Add mascarpone cheese and sugar; beat until well mixed.
  2. Pour espresso into a bowl. Dip ladyfingers in espresso, then touch cookies briefly to a paper towel to remove excess moisture. Arrange dipped ladyfingers in a single layer in the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish. Spread 1/2 the mascarpone cheese mixture over ladyfingers. Arrange another layer of dipped ladyfingers over the mascarpone cheese mixture and spread the remaining 1/2 mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers. Chill in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

This was my first attempt at Tiramisu, and I thought that it turned out well. It was fast, and easy. No electric mixer was necessary, because I used whip cream instead of whipping the cream myself. I used vanilla waifers instead of lady fingers because they were not available at my local grocery store. I dunked them, but in retrospect I would have also sprinkled Baileys over the top to make the cake even more moist and delicious. I disagree that there was too much sugar in this recipe; I might even add more next time! Cool Whip makes a great topping :)



I haven't ate it yet, because it's in the fridge, but I wasn't a fan of the recipe itself. The milk mixture was really liquidy. But I accidentally got ladyfinger cakes and not cookies, so when I dipped them in the coffee, it broke when I took it out. So instead I placed them in the pan and poured coffee over them. DON'T MIX UP THE COOKIES AND CAKES!!! This tip might save you money and time in the long run.



Great recipe! I layered ladyfingers as suggested, but I added an outside wall of ladyfingers around the serving bowl as well. Added a lot the presentation.
