Go for a miraculously delicious classic Tiramisu with this easy and simple recipe (without alcohol). This recipe is the best! It is the ultimate party dessert with a fancy look, elegant design, and unique taste. In this recipe, no raw eggs are involved. 
The combination of strong bitter coffee, tender cakey-textured cookies, and creamy Mascarpone Cream Cheese filling mixture is everything you need for a hearty cloudy dessert. 


Step 1

For a heart-melting Tiramisu, start by making coffee or Espresso and leave it to cool at room temperature.

Step 2

Choose a large deep bowl and mix the egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract (if using) on top of the water bath. Mix continuously, and keep heating for about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Then remove the mixture from the heat, and continue mixing for another 3-4 minutes until it is not grainy anymore. You want the mixture to have a pale-yellow color and dissolved texture.

Step 4

For the next step, you can use both a hand whisk or a stand mixture. Choose a large bowl, beat the Kalleh Mascarpone Cream Cheese for 1 minute, add in the Makhsoos sweetened frozen whipping cream, and keep beating until hard peaks form. You need the mixture to stand firmly.

Step 5

Gently fold in the egg yolks mixture until everything is well combined and thoroughly incorporated. You need to pull the spatula towards you and turn it to bring some of the yolk’s mixtures over the white mixture.

Step 6

Soak each ladyfinger cookie in the coffee one by one for 15 seconds. You want the cookies to absorb enough of the coffee but still be firm.

Step 7

Choose a flat glass dish and line the bottom of it with an even layer of coffee-soaked cookies. Next, spoon in one-third of the pan’s Mascarpone cream cheese mixture and smooth over with a spatula.

Step 8

Repeat dipping and arranging the other layers until the cheese mixture and cookies have been used. Reserve some of the filling for designing the top layer.

Step 9

For the top layer, fill a piping bag with the rest of the creamy cheese mixture and pipe domes on top of the last layer for a classic and fancy look.

Step 10

Refrigerate it for at least two hours before serving. Tiramisu is tastier if you give it enough time to set. When it is cool enough and about to serve, mix the cocoa powder with chocolate shavings in a separate bowl, and sprinkle the top layer.

Step 11

Serve on fancy plates or small cups and side it with strawberry pieces, chocolate-covered raisins, sliced almonds, bananas, or chopped nuts.

Cooking Notes

You can use instant espresso powder and add it to room temperature water. It will dissolve quickly and works well as a replacement. For this mixture, about four tablespoons of powder seem enough. Add more if necessary.

If you prefer a flat top layer, make sure you add half the filling inside and half on top of the last layer, arrange and dust with cocoa powder after refrigerating.
