Makes one 9x13 tiramisu
What you'll need:
5 large egg yolks
3/4 cup - sugar (fine bakers sugar works best)
8 ounces - mascarpone cheese (1 tub)
1 cup - heavy whipping cream
2 packs of ladyfingers
1 cup - strong coffee or espresso (I use Medaglia D' Oro instant espresso)
3/4 cups - Kahlua
cocoa powder for dusting (optional)
white chocolate for shaving (optional)
Combine egg yolks and sugar in the top of a double boiler, over boiling water. Reduce heat to low, and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. After 10 minutes, remove from heat and whisk until thick and bright yellow.
In a separate bowl,whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the yolk mixture into to whipped cream.
Combine coffee and Kahlua in a pie pan or other shallow bowl. Dip the lady fingers in for about 5 seconds and then place them in a single layer in a 9 X 13 glass pan.
