The Best Tiramisu

The Best Tiramisu

 * 6 egg yolks

1 1/4 cups white sugar

1 1/4 cups mascarpone cheese

1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream

2 (3 ounce) packages lady fingers (approx 24 lady fingers total)

1/3 cup Kahlua
Topping extras

* 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder (dust) 

* 1 (1 ounce) square semi sweet chocolate (shaved) 

***To start I chill the bowl I will be whipping the cream in***

* Combine egg yolks and sugar in the top of a double boiler. I do this over boiling water.

* Reduce heat to low.

* Cook for about 10 minutes and don't go anywhere! Stir it constantly.

* Remove the mixture from heat and whip in the yolks until its thick.

* Add the mascarpone to the whipped yolks.

* Beat until combined.

* Pull your chilled bowl out of fridge and whip the cream until the stiff peaks are formed.

* Gently fold into yolk mixture and set aside.

* Split the lady fingers in half.

* Line the bottom and sides of your serving bowl with the lady fingers.

* Brush the lady fingers with the kahlua, espresso or very strong coffee.

* Spoon half of the cream filling over the lady fingers.

* Now you are going to layer - using lady fingers, kahlua and filling.

* Keep going till you run out of lady fingers.

* The top layer of filling is finished off with cocoa or chocolate curls. (Or both!)

BIG SUCCESS HINT: Refrigerate several hours or overnight!
