The literal meaning of tiramisu in Italian is “pick me up” or “cheer me up,” and with finals approaching, we could all use a little of that, especially one with coffee involved.
Traditionally, you make tiramisu by layering ladyfingers dipped in a coffee and rum mixture with a mascarpone and sugar mixture. This recipe features ingredients that are a little easier to find in Forbes Street Market or Giant Eagle, and transforms it into a simple single serving for when you need a little treat after spending all day in Hillman. Good luck on finals and happy holidays!
1 bag Milano cookies
½ cup Mascarpone cheese
¼ cup Heavy whipping Cream/cool whip
2 tablespoon powdered sugar
3 tablespoon Coffee
1. Mix mascarpone, cream and powdered sugar in one bowl until thoroughly combined.
2. Pour coffee into mixture. Combine thoroughly until a smooth fluffy dip.
3. Dip cookies in dip and enjoy with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate!
