Tiramisu for Two | Simple Tiramisu Recipe


Mike LOVES Tiramisu.  If it is on the menu, we're ordering it.  If we're fixing an Italian dinner at home, it is a must.  Some recipes require a cooked custard that needs to chill for hours, then assembled, only to be chilled for more time until it is ready.  Well, I'm just not that organized - especially for dinners that are just for the two of us.

Here is my solution to an easy, no cook Tiramisu that you can fix in a hurry just for the two... of you.  (rhyme = yikes)

Tiramisu for Two
makes two parfait glass servings

1/2 cup of whipping cream
2 tablespoons of sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla
4 ounces of mascarpone cheese

8 lady fingers
1/3 cup of strong coffee or espresso
1 tablespoon of sugar

1 small chocolate bar


To make the cream filling, whip the whipping cream until thickened - about 3 minutes.  Add sugar and vanilla and whip together until stiff.  Incorporate in mascarpone cheese slowly until well combined.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together coffee and sugar.  In two parfait glasses or other sort of individual serving bowls, put two lady fingers in the bottom of each.  Pour 1/4 of the coffee mixture on top of the lady fingers in each glass.  Spoon in 1/4 of mascarpone cheese and whipped cream mixture into each.  Top with two more lady fingers and coffee mixture.  Top with the remaining cream mixture.

To finish, make chocolate shavings with a vegetable peeler on a bar of chocolate.  Refrigerate up to 2 days.
 

Creamy, coffee goodness!


Tiramisu for Two goes great with my Intimate Dinner for Two Menu... a great option for New Years Eve if you are staying in, like us!

    Loved your quick tiramisu ! I've also used pound cake when lady finger could not be found. You would never know ! and for an extra kick we divide the coffee with a coffee liquer.
