Litterally “pick me up”, Tiramisù is on of the most greedy and delicious among Italian desserts. It is very simple to make a fantastic tiramisù. You will need:

  • mascarpone cheese 500 gr.
  • sugar 150 gr.
  • 5 fresh eggs
  • savoiardi 250 gr. (ladies finger cookies)
  • caffè espresso
  • unsugared cocoa powder

    Whisk eggs, sugar, and mascarpone until the mixture becomes thick and ribbony. If you want to make a lighter cream, whisk the albumens with a part of the sugar and a pinch of salt until it gets thick. Then mix all together.
    Prepare a very strong espresso coffee and soak the lady fingers in it. Make layers of lady fingers and cover each of them with the mascarpone cream smoothing it with a spatula. Sprinkle with cocoa powder. Allow to chill for 2-3 hours.
    The only defect of this desert? It is impossible to stop eating it!
