You ever have a craving for something decadent like Tiramisu? Wonder if it requires a little too much work? It doesn’t. There’s a great recipe on the back of the Lady Fingers package and it’s also available on AllRecipes.com.
Here’s a look at one I made…
Grab two packages of ladyfingers. A personal thing I like to do is toast one package and leave the other plain. It only takes a few minutes so watch them closely. They smell soooo good when they’re toasted.
Next, combine granulated sugar and egg yolks in a double boiler, then place it over simmering water for about 10 minutes.
Afterwards, fold whipped heavy cream into the egg yolk and sugar mixture.
Brush the plain ladyfingers gently with a mixture of strong coffee and amaretto and place around the sides of a glass dish. Dip the toasted ladyfingers quickly into the same coffee mixture, then layer in the dish with the cream. Finally, wait about four hours for it to set.
Before diving into it, grate some bittersweet chocolate and sprinkle it generously over the top.
It’s so totally worth the “little” effort you put into it.
