Sunday is desert day!

It's mid winter in Oslo (-12C today), and despite that we made a walk to the alotment garden today. It's nice to check that all is fine and it's a reminder that in a couple of months snow will melt and things will start to grow. We were out for about three hours and that qualifies for desert!

When I got home I made Tiramisu. It would have been better if I did it yesterday, but I bet it tast good tonight too!

Here is the recipe:

You need:
  • 6 fresh egg yolks - room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 small containers Mascarpone - room temperature
  • 2 packages of Ladyfingers
  • 1/2 cup Amaretto di Saronno
  • 4 cups Espresso - cooled
  • cocoa for garnish
  • In a mixer, add egg yolks & sugar. Using the whisk attachment, mix for 5 minutes until eggs are creamy, fluffy and light in color.
  • Add mascarpone and continue to mix until smooth & creamy. Add 1/4 cup of the Amaretto & mix until smooth.
  • In a separate dish, pour the cooled espresso & remaining 1/4 cup of Amaretto. Lightly dip your ladyfingers into espresso mixture & then transfer to a 9 x 12 baking dish until bottom is completely lined (cut/break the ladyfingers if necessary).
  • Spread 1/2 of the cream mixture on top of ladyfingers. Add a second layer of dipped ladyfingers. Spread remaining cream on top.
  • Cover your dish with plastic wrap & refrigerate over night.
  • Before serving lightly dust top with cocoa powder.
Enjoy it!
