  4. Make one layer of lady fingers in a dessert dish (what you want to serve it in).

  6. Carefully spoon the coffee over each lady finger.
  7. Add 1 tbsp sugar to the egg whites and beat until they become stiff.
  8. Once the egg yolks are light & fluffy, add in the Mascarpone and then the egg whites and fold it all together.

Background

Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert.  It's kind of decadent with mascarpone cheese and liqueur.  Ok, so it may not be so diet friendly but it is so quick & easy to prepare and it's great to share, especially at a family gathering or a holiday party.   Friends & family will think you've been slaving in the kitchen all day when it's only taken you 15 to 20 minutes!

Sharing my family recipe is my gift to you.  Watch the video below & you'll see how to make it.  ENJOY!
