Add mascarpone and fold to obtain a cream. Put coffee in a bowl with liqueur. Dip biscuits for a second in coffee mixture, so they absorb enough liquid to just remain firm and in one piece. In 4 seperate dishes, build up alternate layers of biscuit and mascarpone, starting with biscuit, finish with cheese. Dust each one with cocoa. Put in fridge to chill and set (about an hour?).Tiramisu (Deborah Norin)

Repeat the procedure with another layer of soaked ladyfingers, the mascarpone mixture, and chocolate. Cover with tin foil and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.Tiramisu (Lynn Z. Schaeffer)
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Lynn Z. Schaeffer) Ingredients: ------------ Lady finger cookies 6-8 oz. marscaponi cheese or cream cheese 1/2 cup cooled espresso coffee 1/2-3/4 cup chopped semisweet chocolate 4 Tbsp butter 3 eggs separated 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup sweet Marsala wine Whipped cream or Cool-Whip Instructions: ------------- Melt chocolate in butter, set aside to cool slightly. Whip the egg yolks until light. Add sugar and beat over a double boiler until it is slightly thickened, fluffy, and light. Slowly add the Marsala wine, whipping all the while. (You now have Zabbaoni (sp?). Fold in the chocolate mixture. Set aside. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks, then fold into the the chocolate until just blended. In separate bowl, whip the marcaponi cheese while slowly adding the espresso coffee. Add about 2 Tbsp. of sugar to it. (I didn't do this but think it would be a good idea). Line the bottom of a pretty glass bowl with the ladyfingers. Layer the cheese mixure over it, then the chocolate, then a layer of whipped cream; repeat twice. End with whipped cream and dust lightly with cocoa. Refrigerate several hours.Tiramisu (Paul Gavazzi)
From: Paul Gavazzi, Ottawa University, Canada Ingredients: ------------ 6 eggs 6 Tbls sugar 500 gr Mascarpone 250 ml Whipping Cream a Bag of Ladyfingers Instructions: ------------- Beat the 6 egg yolks together and then gradually add the 6 tablespoons of sugar (The more you beat this the better, try getting a light lemon color). Add and mix the Mascarpone cheese. Beat the whites to firm peaks, add to the egg-cheese mix. Beat the whipping cream firm... Add it also to the mix. Your filling is ready. Brew some really strong coffee (Espresso) ~around, put in a soup dish and then add some Marsala (Italian sweet liquor, i guess that sherry would do) to taste. Soak ladyfinger to half, (2 at a time) then press together to remove excess coffee(The lady fingers shouldn't be too soft). Put a layer of soaked fingers in a rectangular container. Add a thick layer of cheese mix, and continue until no more mix or fingers remain. Sprinkle with powdered cocao and refrigerate for at least 6 hours before eating.Tiramisu (Stephanie da Silva)

From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Todd Smith) (Italian for "pick me up") Ingredients: ------------ 300 g Savoiardi biscuits (or lady fingers) 450 g Mascarpone cheese 3 egg whites 5 egg yolks 150 g sugar a cup (or two) of cold coffee 1/2 an espresso cup of brandy bitter cocoa Instructions: ------------- Mash the egg yolks and sugar until creamy; then mix in the cheese. Add the brandy and mix well until you have a homogeneous cream. Beat the whites separately until stiff peaks form, and then blend those in with the first mixture. This is what is used for the cream layers. The layers in between will be lady fingers dipped in the cold coffee. Probably the best number of layers is five (three cream, two lady finger, alternating). Then sprinkle cocoa on the top and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours. Other notes of interest: American cooks might not be used to using ingredients measured in grams (I wasn't). The Mascarpone should be labeled in grams; for the lady fingers, you can pretty much see how many are needed for two layers; and for the sugar, I used an empty 150 g Mascarpone container for the 150 g of sugar and it came out fine, so I guess the densities of Mascarpone cheese and sugar are at least close. The mixing can be done with a fork (perhaps a blender would be fine too). One bad thing is that the tiramisu doesn't have a whole lot of solidity; it tends to expand to fill up the space it is in, so you probably don't want to leave it for a long time in a container that is too big for it. But it tastes wonderful -- I hope it comes out good for you.Tiramisu 1 (David Malecki)
From: email@example.com (David Malecki) Ingredients: ------------ 24 ladyfingers, split lengthwise 3/4 cup espresso coffee, cooled 6 eggs, separated 6 tbls sugar 14 ounces mascarpone cheese 2 tbls brandy 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped or coarsely grated Instructions: ------------- Heat oven to 375 degrees.

From: firstname.lastname@example.org (David Malecki) Ingredients: ------------ 6 eggs, separated 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar 1 1/2 cups mascarpone cheese substitute 24 lady fingers, split lengthwise 3/4 cup hot water 2 t instant coffee granules 1/4 C + 2 T brandy 1 2/3 cups whipping cream, whipped 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, coarsely grated 3 T cocoa powder Extra whipping cream for garnish Instructions: ------------- Arrange half the lady fingers in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Mix hot water with coffee granules and 2 T. brandy. Pour 1/2 this mixture gently over lady fingers. Set aside. Make a zablione by beating the egg yolks and sugar in the top of a double boiler until ivory colored. Add 1/4 C. brandy and whisk over simmering water until the mixture starts to thicken - 8-10 minutes. Let cool a little. Stir constantly while cooking. Carefully mix zabliogne with mascarpone cheese. It will appear to be quite liquid. Whip the egg whites until very stiff and fold into zabliogne/mascarpone mixture. Pour 1/2 zabliogne mixture over the lady fingers, which have been soaking up the coffee/brandy mixture. Top with 1/2 whipped cream. Sprinkle with 1/2 of cocoa powder and 1/2 of grated chocolate. Place balance of lady fingers on top of this to create a second layer. Pour remaining coffee mixture carefully over these lady fingers. Then repeat layers; zabliogne, whipped cream, cocoa powder and grated chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate till set. It is best if left over-night. When ready serve, decorate with piped-on whipped cream around the edges and more chocolate and/or cocoa powder if desired. Yield 10-12 servings, depending on the size you cut them. It is quite rich so you might consider smaller sized pieces. Note: ----- You can substitute Marsala wine for the brandy if you prefer and like the taste of Marsala. Mascarpone cheese is sold in Italian delis, cheese shops and speciality food markets. It is somewhat difficult to find and very expensive (i.e. from $9.95 per pound). From January 1991 Southern Living Magazine comes this substitute for mascarpone. Mascarpone Cheese Substitute ---------------------------- 16 oz cream cheese (2 8 oz. packages) 1/3 cup sour cream 2 ounces (1/4 cup) whipping cream Blend three ingredients well.Tiramisu' alla Milanese (Jacopo Andreose)
From: Jacopo Andreose, Institute of Neurophysiology, University of Oslo, Norway (4 Servings) Tiramisu means something in between "pick me up" and "pull me up" due to the high concentration of energetic ingredients. Nevertheless is not recommended before any kind of sports. Ingredients: ------------ 100 g dark chocolate 500 g Mascarpone cheese (if you can't find it try with creme fraiche, but please don't use sour cream instead): 3 eggs 250 g Savoiardi cookies (if you don't find them try with some other porous, egg containing biscuits) 300-400ml dark coffee (doesn't have to be espresso, but please no Nescafe) 3-4 Tblsp sugar (depending on how sweet you like it, but not more than 3-4 Tblsp) 50-100 ml Marsala wine (not easy to find and not compulsory) Ingredients: ------------ Place mascarpone, the yellow of the eggs and sugar in a bowl and then whip until it gets homogeneous and thick (you could use an electrical whipper). Dip quickly one by one the savoiardi cookies in freshly prepared hot coffee (mixed with marsala in the alcoholic version) and place them in another glass bowl (better a flat one) in one or more layers depending upon the size of the bowl. Pour the mascarpone sauce on such layers and cover the whole sauce with chocolate dust (make it as fine as you can). Place at 4 !C for at least two hours and serve after an italian dinner.Tiramisu - Italian Cheese Charlotte (Scott Rose)
