  • 1 cup strong brewed espresso, cooled
  • 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur (optional)
  • 24 ladyfinger cookies
  • 16 oz mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting


  1. Prepare Espresso Mixture: In a shallow dish, combine the cooled espresso and coffee liqueur (if using). Stir well to mix the flavors.
  2. Soak Ladyfingers: Dip each ladyfinger into the espresso mixture, ensuring they are soaked but not overly soggy. Arrange a layer of soaked ladyfingers in the bottom of a 9×9-inch dish, covering the entire surface.
  3. Prepare Mascarpone Mixture: In a mixing bowl, beat together the mascarpone cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  4. Whip Heavy Cream: In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  5. Combine Mascarpone and Cream: Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until fully incorporated. This will create a light and airy filling for your tiramisu.
  6. Layer Tiramisu: Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the layer of soaked ladyfingers in the dish, ensuring an even distribution.
  7. Repeat Layers: Repeat the process with another layer of soaked ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture, creating alternating layers of espresso-soaked ladyfingers and creamy mascarpone filling.
  8. Chill: Cover the tiramisu and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and the dessert to set. This will ensure a perfect texture and flavor.
  9. Dust with Cocoa Powder: Before serving, dust the top of the tiramisu with cocoa powder for a finishing touch. This will add a hint of bitterness and enhance the rich flavors of the dessert.
  10. Serve and Enjoy: Slice the tiramisu into portions and serve chilled. Savor each bite as you enjoy the harmonious blend of espresso and mascarpone in every mouthful.
