Surprise your sweetheart this Valentines Day or any night, with a delicious Indian version of tiramisu. Tiramisu is traditionally an Italian dessert, and this is a similar recipe with an Indian twist. Why not give it a try? No one can resist the creamy deliciousness of fresh Tiramisu.
You Will Need:
*Cream Cheese – 8oz box at room temp
*Sugar – 6 Tbsp
*Whipped Cream – 3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream plus 1 Tbsp Sugar whipped to 1 1/2 cups
*Egg Yolks – 3
*Strong Coffee – 1 cup (or as needed) mixed with 2 Tbsp Rum (optional)
*Lady Fingers – 1 package
*Cocoa Powder & Powdered Sugar
In a large mixing bowl, mix softened Cream Cheese with 3 Tbsp of sugar until sugar is completely dissolved.
In a separate bowl, mix 3 egg yolks with remaining 3 Tbsp of sugar and whisk continuously in a double boiler until eggs are cooked (approx 1-2 minutes). The color of the yolks will turn a lemon yellow when done.
Immediately mix the egg mixture into the cream cheese mixture and stir well.
Add 2-3 Tbsp of the coffee into the mixture and mix well.
Whip Heavy Whipping Cream and 1 Tbsp Sugar in a bowl over ice until fluffy. Fold Whipped Cream into cream cheese/egg mixture until well incorporated.
Dip each Lady Finger into the coffee (for 1-2 seconds on each side) and place into square or rectangle tray until the bottom is completely covered.
Spread 1/2 of the cream cheese filling evenly on top of the fingers.
Lightly dust cocoa powder over the filling.
Repeat with another layer of coffee dipped fingers.
Top with remaining filling.
Sprinkle cocoa powder over the top to form a coating.
Chill overnight to set.
Garnish with a light dusting of powdered sugar.
