Traditional Tiramisù

Serves: 6 • Time: 15 minutes, plus 24 hours chilling

The literal translation of tiramisù is “pick me up,” so this quintessential Italian dessert is a perfect pick-me-up after a multi-course Italian meal. Just be sure to prep it a day in advance, as the tiramisu needs to chill in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours before serving.

  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • cup mascarpone
  • Salt
  • 6 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • cup brewed Giuliano Caffè coffee
  • 1 package of ladyfinger cookies
  • Whipped cream, for garnish
  • Cocoa powder, for garnish


1. Beat the egg yolks with 2 Tbsp. sugar until thick and pale yellow, about 2 minutes. Beat in the mascarpone until just combined.

2. In a separate bowl, beat the 2 egg whites to soft peaks, add the remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar and a pinch of salt, and beat to stiff peaks. Gently fold the egg whites into the mascarpone cream.

3. Crumble a layer of ladyfingers into 6 dessert cups. Pour in just enough coffee to dampen the ladyfingers, then add a layer of the mascarpone cream. Repeat until the cup is full, finishing with a layer of ladyfingers. Chill for 24 hours, then top with whipped cream and cocoa powder.
