Classic Tiramisu

What is Tiramisu?

Tiramisu is a traditional Italian dessert that’s often enjoyed on summer afternoons with a glass of wine.  The name means “pick me up” in Italian, and the flavors do the name justice. It’s light, airy, creamy, and decadent.

Simple Ingredients

Tiramisu may look fancy, but the ingredients are quite simple. You probably have most of them already!

Make Egg Yolk Mixture

Classic tiramisu has egg yolks that have been lightly cooked with Grand Marnier and sugar. It's easy to do using a double boiler.

Beat the Cream

Beat the cream, then add sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into the egg yolk mixture.

Add Ladyfingers

Soak the ladyfingers briefly in cooled coffee, then start to assemble your tiramisu.

Add Cream

Add a layer of cream over the ladyfinger cookies, which are also called savoiardi. 

Add Another Layer

Add another layer of cookies, then another layer of cream. Chill overnight.

Add Chocolate!

After the tiramisu has chilled, shave some high-quality chocolate on top. Don't hold back!
