Step 2 - Combine tiramisu

  • Whip egg yolks with mascarpone cheese until smooth.
  • In the same bowl, gently fold in mascarpone mixture to meringue until batter is evenly combined. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, add coffee and amaretto and stir. Break ladyfingers in half, then dip smooth side down into milk for 3 seconds, then flip.

Step 3 - Assemble tiramisu

  • In a rock glass, add ladyfingers sugar side down. Spoon 4-5 Tbsp batter on top of ladyfingers, then add more ladyfingers again. Repeat until glass is at least 80% full.

    Adding the ladyfingers sugar side down ensures that the coffee will not leak into layers underneath, as the sugar coating acts as a shield.
  • Chill glasses in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
