Preparation Time: 30  minutes   Chilling Time: 4 hours  or overnight  Serving: 8-10 servings


– 24 ladyfinger biscuits (savoiardi) – 4 cups brewed espresso, cooled – 1/2 cup granulated sugar – 4 large egg yolk – 1/2 cup Marsala wine (or substitute with coffee liqueur) – 1 pound mascarpone cheese, softened – 1 cup heavy cream – 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting – Dark chocolate shavings, for garnish

Step 1: Brew the Espresso

Start by brewing 4 cups of espresso and allowing it to cool. You can use an espresso machine or a stovetop coffee maker to make a strong, flavorful espresso. Set it aside to cool completely.

Step 2: Prepare the Egg Yolk Mixture

In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks and granulated sugar. Use an electric mixer or whisk to beat them together until the mixture becomes light and creamy.

Step 3: Incorporate the Marsala Wine

Slowly add the Marsala wine (or coffee liqueur) to the egg yolk mixture while continuing to beat it. Make sure the wine is fully incorporated into the mixture.

Step 4: Add the Mascarpone Cheese

Add the softened mascarpone cheese to the egg yolk mixture. Use a spatula or whisk to gently fold the cheese into the mixture until it becomes smooth and creamy. Set the mixture aside.

Step 5: Whip the Heavy Cream

In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. This will add a light and fluffy texture to the tiramisu. Be careful not to overbeat the cream.

Step 6: Fold in the Whipped Cream

Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture. Use a spatula to combine the two mixtures together, ensuring a smooth and airy consistency.

Step 7: Assemble the Tiramisu

Dip each ladyfinger biscuit into the cooled espresso, making sure to coat both sides without soaking them for too long. Place the soaked biscuits in a single layer in a rectangular dish or individual serving glasses.

Step 8: Layer the Cream Mixture

Spread a layer of the mascarpone cream mixture over the soaked ladyfinger biscuits, ensuring an even distribution. Repeat the process by adding another layer of soaked ladyfingers followed by the cream mixture until the dish is filled or the ingredients are used up. The top layer should be the cream mixture.

Step 9: Refrigerate and Allow to Set

Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and the tiramisu to set properly.

Step 10: Serve and Garnish

Before serving, remove the tiramisu from the refrigerator. Dust the top with unsweetened cocoa powder and sprinkle dark chocolate shavings over it for an elegant finishing touch. Cut into individual portions and serve chilled.

Enjoy the luscious and delectable Tiramisu inspired by the renowned Wolfgang Puck. Each spoonful will transport you to a world of rich flavors and creamy indulgence!
