Authentic Tiramisu

Get ready I just went to Italy for a week and took cooking classes.

WOW!!!

What a blast.

I ate all week and lost weight.

My theory about eating non processed food has been proven.

If you eat good food you will not gain weight so put down those chips and hot dogs.

This tiramisu was whipped up in ten minutes and was delicious.

This makes enough for four to six people.

4 eggs

4 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extraxt

10 to 12 biscuit cookies or lady fingers

One cup of strong coffee

4 Tablespoons mascarpone

Cocoa powder

You can use sweetened or unsweetened but I use the unsweetened baking cocoa.

One to two tablespoons Amaretto liquor

Take out four to six pretty glasses or any other 3 ounce dish

Separate the egg yolk from the egg white

Whip the whites till they are firm and set aside.

In a separate bowl whip the egg yolks till they are light yellow

Add the sugar and whip till the sugar has completely dissolved and the yolks are like satin.

Add the vanilla

Whip in the mascarpone till everything is smooth

Fold in the whipped egg whites.

Mix the Amaretto and coffee together

Now it is just an assembly process.

Put some of the egg yolk mixture in the bottom of the glass

Dip the biscuit in the coffee mixture and place over the egg mixture

Sprinkle with the cocoa

Repeat the process till everything is used up ending with the egg mixture and then the cocoa.

Cover and place in the refrig for a couple of hours.

Thats it!

I like small dishes because it is a rich dessert but you can make a huge bowl and just serve it with a spoon.

This should be made the same day it is served.

Thank you Alessandros’ Mom.
