Quick Tiramisu, From Gordan Ramsey's CookAlong Live
* 1 cup mascarpone
* 1/4 cup powdered sugar
* 4 tablespoons Marsala, or sweet dessert wine such as vin santo
* 1 vanilla bean, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 3/4 cup heavy cream
* 1 cup cold strong coffee
* 4 Italian ladyfingers, or savoiardi
* Piece of chocolate, to grate as garnish
Sift the powdered sugar into the mascarpone. If using a vanilla bean, split it open and scrape out the seeds. Add the vanilla seeds (or vanilla extract) and Marsala to the mascarpone and mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks.
Mix the cream and mascarpone together and refrigerate if possible.
Break the ladyfingers in half and dip very briefly in the cold coffee. Divide them into the bottom of four serving glasses. Spoon the mascarpone mixture on top.
Grate over a little chocolate and serve
Let me know what you think!
Note* Marscapone should not be beated or else it will get all clumpy and look like oatmeal.
When buying it they sell it in oz's. Remember 8oz=1cup
Chilling it will make it thicker.
