Theresa’s recipe for Tiramisu!!
.65 cups sugar plus a teaspoon
a dash of salt
1 tub mascarpone cheese
lady finger cookies
some unsweetened chocolate for the top when you serve it.
Separate eggs into separate bowls. Add a spoon of sugar and a dash of salt to the whites. Beat the whites like crazy, for a long while, until they are stiff peaks. To the yolks, add the remaining sugar. Beat until pale. Add marscapone (and some rum if you want!) to the yolks and beat more a bit. Gently fold the whites and yolks together.
Dip the lady fingers into coffee, layer them on the bottom of the glass dish. Layer on the filling. Layer fingers. Layer filling.
Refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
Before serving, lightly sprinkle the chocolate on top.
