Some desserts are so easy and quick to make that I’m almost embarrassed to share the recipes. Tiramisu is one of these. Start by separating 5 eggs. Mix the yolks and ½ cup sugar until the mixture is whitish, and then add 400 grams of mascarpone. Now mix the egg whites separately until firm and add delicately into the bowl with the yolks. Take a glass rectangular baking dish—12-14 inches by 9 inches by 4 inches deep. Put ladyfinger cookies in a layer on the bottom. Make a strong pot of coffee and take a large cup and pour onto the cookies. You should put enough coffee to moisten the cookies, not make them too soggy. You can add cognac or marsala wine to the coffee if you wish. Cover the cookies with the cream mixture and flatten nicely. That’s it. Best to do the night before and put in the fridge to cool. It looks spectacular and people will think it took hours.
