“Having moved to Texas & meeting new friends, I joined a BUNCO group of wonderful ladies. We each had a month to throw game night. I went with an Italian theme as I was new to the state and wanted to bring something from the north-east. Needless to say; this recipe was a hit!”


Servings: 9

Prep Time: 14 Minutes

Cook Time: 4 Hours


  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • 8 oz container mascarpone or cream cheese room temperature

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 cups cold espresso or strong brew coffee

  • 1 tablespoons Kahlua or amaretto flavored liqueur

  • 1 package lady finger cookies

  • cocoa powder for dusting the top


Have a 9×13'' or similar size pan set aside.

Add whipping cream to a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed with electric mixers (or use a stand mixer). Slowly add sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until stiff peaks. Add mascarpone cheese and mix just until combined. Set aside.

Add coffee and liqueur to a shallow bowl. Dip the lady fingers in the coffee (Don't soak them–just quickly dip them on both sides to get them wet) and lay them in a single layer on the bottom of an 9×13'' or similar size pan.

Smooth half of the mascarpone mixture over the top. Add another layer of dipped lady fingers. Smooth remaining mascarpone cream over the top.

Dust cocoa powder generously over the top (I use a fine mesh strainer to do this). Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or up to overnight before serving.

Make ahead instructions:

Tiramisu is even better when made in advance, allowing the flavors to blend! It will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

Also try my Limoncello Tiramisu for a light and fresh version for the summer months!

"Alcohol: Tiramisu can be made with or without alcohol. This recipe calls for coffee flavored liqueur because I like that it enhances the coffee flavor, but other options are marsala wine or brandy."
