Gardengrl. Here is the recipe that I use.


Home Cookin 4.9 Chapter: Recipes From Thibeault's Table

This is my recipe. I have been
making it this way for many years
Most Tiramisu recipes
are made with raw eggs. This one
starts with cooked custard:

1 Custard recipe (follows)

1 500g tub of mascarpone cream cheese
1/2 Cup whipping cream
1 Cup fresh strong espresso
1/4 Cup cognac or rum
1 Package ladyfingers
ground chocolate
1/2 Pint whipping cream
Creme Anglaise (optional)


1/2 Cup sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1-1/2 Cups hot milk
3 egg yolks
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Teaspoon vanilla

Combine sugar, flour and salt in saucepan. Gradually stir in hot milk. Cook
over low heat stirring until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking for 1

Beat egg yolks slightly. Gradually stir in about 1/2 of thickened sauce. Add
this mixture back into saucepan with remaining sauce. cook an additional 2
to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and blend in butter and vanilla. Place
plastic wrap on surface and refrigerate. Cool completely.

Beat Mascarpone cheese with whipping cream. Add cooled custard and mix well.
Dip ladyfingers into coffee and cognac mixture and place one layer in bowl
of choice. Cover with half of cheese mixture. Repeat with another layer of
ladyfingers and finish with cheese mixture. Prepare one day ahead. Before
serving cover with whipping cream and ground chocolate.

To serve. prepare a Creme Anglaise recipe and pour some on to plate, place
two scoops of tiramisu on the sauce and drizzle with warm chocolate sauce.
Add a few fresh strawberries or raspberries
