Gluten Free Tiramisu 

EditHellllllllllo. I felt really ambitious around mid day. My son was happily playing in the floor under my feet, So, I went for it! I did. I whipped up these sweet tiramisu little dream parfaits in less than 20 minutes. We went to the farmers market Saturday and had some fresh eggs ( fresh eggs are a must for this recipe) so I put them to great use. 

Here is what you need: 

  • 5 eggs separated (yolks in one bowl, whites in another ) 
  • 1/2 of granulated sugar 
  • Dash of salt 
  • Tsp of Vanilla extract or bourbon if you wild 
  • 1/4 cup of espresso or strong coffee 
  • Lady finger cookies. I used the Enjoy Life sugar crisp cookies. They are gluten free and delicious. 
  • Mascarpone cheese 18 oz 
  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder 
  • Dark chocolate square for garnish (believe me the rest of that bar will not go to waste around here) 

Here is how you do it: 

Alright, separate those eggs. Beat the yolk with 1/4 cup of sugar. Add in the mascarpone cheese. Beat the whites and a dash of salt until foamy. Then add 1/4 cup of sugar gradually until you get soft peaks. Fold in the white mixture to the yellow. 

Fill up a flat dish with cooled coffee (you can add a tablespoon of sugar to sweeten). Break your cookies into smaller pieces and soak them in the coffee mixture. Soak for a few seconds but don’t let them become soggy. 

Assemble your parfait in a tall dish or glass. Layer cookies soaked in coffee, spoon egg mixture on top, followed by a sprinkle of cocoa powder, then repeat until glass is full. Add shaved dark chocolate on top. Now put them in the fridge for a couple of hours to set up (lick the bowl to help fight the temptation to eat parfait immediately!) 

This is easy and left overs make the best breaksfast dessert! A cup of coffee and tiramisu are the beginnings of an amazing day!
