This Sunday it’s Christmas! It is so exciting around here, but then with a teenager, life is always exciting. I am planning to have our annual Tiramisu for dessert on Christmas day. If you have never attempted to make it, this is a great opportunity to enjoy a delicious, creamy dessert that does not require baking and will taste better the day after when all the flavors have had the opportunity to blend together.
Now, if I only who what that big box with my name under the tree is…
On the ninth day of Christmas
my true love cooked for me
Nine lady fingers in tiramisu
Eight pork tenderloin a milking
seven shrimps a swimming
six meatballs a laying in a bed of pasta
five golden onion rings
four Cornish hen
three French Clafoutis aux poires
two Dover sole with caramelized onions
and a poached pear in a wine sauce
14 ounces Savoiardi cookies
14 ounces Mascarpone Cheese
4 ounces sugar
2 small cups of very strong coffee
Separate the eggs white and yolks and place them each on a separate bowl.
Work the egg yolks with the sugar until a cream is formed. Add the mascarpone to the mixture.
In a separate bowl beat the egg while until soft peaks are formed.
Fold the egg whites to the egg-sugar mixture.
Dip the savoiardi in the coffee ( not too soggy) and place in a plate which can hold two layers of cookies.
Cover the first layer of savoiardi with some of the mascarpone cream.
Alternate each layer with savoiardi and cream ending with the last layer to be the cream.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours. Dust the top with cacao powder and enjoy.
