  • 1 cup brewed espresso, cooled
  • 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur (optional)
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 24 to 30 ladyfingers
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the brewed espresso and coffee liqueur (if using). Set aside to cool.
  2. In a heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and granulated sugar. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water (double boiler) and whisk continuously until the mixture becomes pale and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  3. Once the egg mixture has cooled, fold in the mascarpone cheese until well combined. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until smooth and creamy.
  6. Dip each ladyfinger into the espresso mixture for a few seconds, making sure not to soak them too long. Arrange a layer of dipped ladyfingers in the bottom of a serving dish.
  7. Spoon half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers and spread it evenly.
  8. Repeat with another layer of dipped ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture.
  9. Cover and refrigerate the tiramisu for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to meld.
  10. Before serving, dust the top with unsweetened cocoa powder.
