"Traditional" Tiramisu

"Traditional" Tiramisu


This kid friendly, alcohol free, sweet and light tiramisu nearly mimics the traditional tastes of this famous Italian dessert. Everything about this sweet course is delicate, from its small fluffy ladyfingers to its petite serving dish. The sweet feathery crème is made with bitter chocolate and coffee powders, sugar, eggs, and velvety subtle mascarpone cheese. Alternate the thick airy biscuits and crème, fill each small dessert dish and finish with a shifted sprinkle of biting coco powder.
