  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium bowl beat together the egg yolks and 1/3 cup of sugar. Using a wooden spoon stir in mascarpone cheese, beaten egg whites, cream and kirschwasser; stir until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Dissolve remaining 2/3 cup sugar in coffee. Quickly, to avoid complete saturation, dip ends of ladyfingers in coffee mixture. Place ladyfingers in a single layer in a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. Spread a layer of cheese mixture over the ladyfingers; repeat layers, ending with cheese mixture.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Sprinkle with cocoa just before serving.

This recipe is so delicious. I skipped the kirschwasser and added about a teaspoon of vanilla. You will not be disapointed!

my family begs me to make this all the time. i don't have any kirschwasser so i just subbed with coffee liquor. this one is a keeper

with tiramisu you can also subsititute the coffee, and liquer with ovaltine, or hot chocolate mix, tiramisu means pick me up, but in italy children are given the substitued one.
