Tiramisu


Tiramisu
Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.

Using cutters, cut round biscuits the same size as your small dishes.

Remarks

You can also try the new tiramisu, easier and (maybe) even more delicious.

If you don't like the taste of coffee, you can try an apple tiramisu where you replace coffee by syrup with half apple juice, and Marsala by manzanita, the Spanish green apple liquor.
