Holiday Tiramisu

Prep: 40 min
YIELD: 8 servings
I made this the holiday 2015 dinner and turned out delicious!

cups brewed coffee, cooled
(8-ounce) containers mascarpone cheese at room temperature
6 eggs separated
14 ounces savoiardi cookies (firm ladyfingers)
ounces sugar, plus 2 tablespoons or more, for the coffee
shots rum,  optional
Pinch salt
tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup shaved dark chocolate, to garnish

First prepare the coffee enough to serve 12 (about 3 cups) pour it in a bowl and allow to cool off, add 2 tablespoons sugar or sweeten to taste. 

Mix 6 egg yolks with 2 ounces sugar, and mix until you obtain a creamy light mixture. Then add the mascarpone to the sugar-egg mixture and continue to mix well. 

In a separate bowl, mix the 6 egg whites, pinch of salt, and the remaining 2 ounces sugar, until they reach a somewhat firm, but fluffy consistency, then add them to the mascarpone mixture. Stir in the rum, if using. 

Dip the cookies in the coffee, and one by one lay them flat into a 7 by 11 Pyrex tray, making sure you do not soak the cookies, as you want to make sure they maintain their firmness. Once the first layer of cookies has been laid out, spread a layer of the mascarpone cream 
on top, and dust with 1 tablespoon cocoa powder. 

Now, again, prepare another layer of coffee-dipped cookies, cream and cocoa powder. Garnish the top of the cake with the shaved dark chocolate.

Cover the tray with aluminum or plastic wrap 
and refrigerate for about 3 hours so the flavors can marry and the tiramisu can settle.
Enjoy !!!
