When you know that mascarpone comes from Italy, you immediately understand why Italian desserts are so good.
Italian Tiramisu with Ottima Mascarpone
This delicious and unbelievably easy Tiramisu recipe is made with coffee-soaked lady fingers, sweet and creamy mascarpone and cocoa powder dusted on top. It requires no baking and can be made in advance! Everyone will ask you for the recipe of this fabulous tiramisu because they will be under the spell of its flavors!
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 8x8'' 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.
