Made with mascarpone custard and layers of ladyfingers soaked in rum and coffee, this easy-to-make Italian Tiramisu makes the perfect after-dinner dessert.



2 packages ladyfinger cookies (3 ounces each pack)

1 tablespoon cocoa powder (unsweetened)

2 tablespoons rum

1 pound mascarpone cheese

1/4 cup brewed coffee

1 1/4 cups heavy cream

3/4 cup white sugar

2/3 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 large egg yolks


  1. Put the egg yolks in a saucepan and mix well. Turn to medium heat and add milk. Stir constantly and wait until it starts to boil. Remove from heat after a minute and then allow to cool before leaving in the fridge for an hour.
  2. Put cream and vanilla in a medium bowl and beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. Add mascarpone into the yolk mixture and mix until smooth.
  4. Combine coffee and rum in a separate bowl.
  5. Split ladyfingers in half (lengthwise) and drizzle with coffee mixture.
  6. Using a 7X11-inch dish, arrange half of the soaked ladyfingers and then pour over mascarpone mixture. Top with half of the whipped cream. Repeat the layering and then sprinkle with cocoa.
  7. Refrigerate for about 4 hours until it sets.


The mascarpone cheese and coffee should both be at room temperature. And for better results, go for a strong-tasting brewed coffee.
