• 6 egg yolks

  • 3 tablespoons Sugar

  • 1 lb mascarpone

  • 1.5 cups strong Espresso Coffee cooled

  • 2 teaspoons dark Rum

  • 24 packaged lady fingers

  • 0.5 cup bittersweet Chocolate shavings, for garnish


  • 1.

    In a large bowl, using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Add mascarpone cheese and beat until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of espresso and mix until thoroughly combined.

  • 2.

    In a small shallow dish, add remaining espresso and rum. Dip each ladyfinger into espresso for only 5 seconds. Letting the ladyfingers soak too long will cause them to fall apart. Place the soaked ladyfinger on the bottom of a 13 by 9 inch baking dish, breaking them in half if necessary in order to fit the bottom.

  • 3.

    Spread evenly 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers. Arrange another layer of soaked ladyfingers and top with remaining mascarpone mixture.

  • 4.

    Cover tiramisu with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to 8 hours.

  • 5.

    Before serving, sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
