Lest you worry that the adults in our house are being left out of any fun, don't you fret. I've made one of our favorite sinful desserts, tiramisu. I originally found this recipe in the November 2008 Oprah Magazine, but searched and found it here to share with you.
Although it's a decadent dessert, it's super easy to make. Gathering the ingredients can sometimes be a chore though. I found the ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese at Trader Joe's. Fortunately, our local grocery store carries pasteurized eggs. I can make the espresso at home, but if you can't, a cup of very strong coffee will work.
It really doesn't take much time to make this dessert, but you will want to make it in advance so the flavors blend. The recipe calls for you to brush the ladyfingers with the espresso blend, but I dip them. You want them to have plenty of the liquid and not be soggy. I use my Pampered Chef shaker to dust the cocoa powder on each layer. It keeps the cocoa from being clumpy.
Happy New Year!
