Tiramisu….a heavenly experience
- 8 Comments
For those who don’t have a clue as to what this is, let me shed some light. Tiramisu, literally meaning “pick me up”, is an Italian layered dessert, consisting of alternating layers of coffee-soaked Savoiardi biscuits and sweet mixture of mascarpone cheese, eggs and sugar. Though I was familiar with the name, the first time I had it was during a trip to Philadelphia. Heavenly… that’s how I can explain the experience. I enjoyed every bit of it. Tiramisu was in my “must try” recipes for a long time. The only thing that was holding me back from trying this, was the non-availability of Mascarpone cheese at the grocers in India. Fortunately, I came across a site which provided the recipe ofHomemade Mascarpone Cheese. Needless to say, I tried it out and came out with flying colours.. ๐
The recipe I followed for Tiramisu, was taken from The Cooks Collection. Its a very time consuming recipe. But let me tell you, its worth every bit of the effort. From the cheese making to making the ladyfingers and creams and then assembling took me two days preparation. D just couldnt wait to try it out. As soon as I clicked pics to my satisfaction, he dug in.. ๐
In the evening when I served this to D’s friends, they loved it so much. Not only did they have second helpings but cutely asked for the recipe as well.. ๐ I am sure you all can guess how I felt.. I am grateful to Ramya for sharing this. Here’s the recipe.
