My mom and I made this amazing dessert for our Christmas dinner. Tiramisu is an Italian dessert with finger biscuits soaked in espresso and mascarpone. We used this recipe, it's really very simple to make! It will be enough for 8 quite large portions.


250 ml whipped cream (the one you still need to whip yourself)
75 g white castor sugar (basterdsuiker)
4 egg yolks
500 g mascarpone (Italian cream cheese)
5 tablespoons coffee liquor (or almond liquor)
200 ml espresso coffee
250 g finger biscuits
Cacoa powder

Square or rectangular bowl, approximately 1 1/4 liter
In a bowl, whip the whipped cream with 1 teaspoon of  the sugar until it is nearly stiff. In another bowl, mix (using a mixer) the egg yolks with the rest of the sugar for 5 minutes until it is a creamy mixture. Carefully (using a spoon) mix parts of the mascarpone through the egg yolks, until you have done so with all the mascarpone. Now gently fold (spoon, mix, don't know what word to use) the whipped cream through the mascarpone mixture. Take a shallow, long bowl and in there mix the liquor through the (cooled down) espresso. Take half of the finger biscuits and dip them into the coffee mixture, then put them with the coffee side up in the bowl (the 1 1/4 l one). Once the bottom is covered with finger biscuits, spread half of the mascarpone mixture over them. Then repeat with the rest of the finger biscuits to form another one of these layers. Let the tiramisu stiffen in the refridgerator for at least an hour. Take it out shortly before serving and cover generously with cacoa powder (use a small siff).

We started using a 1 1/4 liter bowl, but this wasn't big enough, so we used the one shown on the picture. So if you have on that is a bit bigger, use that one.
