Traditional Italian Tiramisu

Time: 20 mins


  • 1 lb mascarpone cheese
  • 3 tablespoons Frangelico (any type of hazelnut liquor will do)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 24 italian ladyfingers (Savoiardi)
  • 1 cup espresso (room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup bittersweet chocolate, shaved into small pieces


  • 1 In a large mixing bowl combine the mascarpone cheese, Frangelico liquor and sugar.
  • 2 In a separate bowl whip the whipping cream till soft peaks form.
  • 3 Gently fold mascarpone mixture into the whip cream.
  • 4 In an 8x8-inch glass serving dish layer 1/2 the ladyfingers tightly on the bottom.
  • 5 Drizzle 1/2 the espresso over the ladyfingers, trying to saturate them evenly.
  • 6 Spread 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture on top of the ladyfingers.
  • 7 Sprinkle 1/2 of the shaved chocolate over the top.
  • 8 Layer remaining ladyfingers on top of the shaved chocolate. Again, you are looking to get a nice tight layer.
  • 9 Drizzle the remaining espresso over the ladyfingers.
  • 10 Spread the rest of the mascarpone mixture on top of the ladyfingers. You can either spread it nice and smooth with a spatula OR spread the mixture and create soft peaks for texture and appearance.
  • 11 Sprinkle the remaining shaved chocolate on top.
  • 12 Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight for best results (at least 8 hours).
  • 13 Enjoy!
