  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese *see note
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup Nutella

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • powdered sugar for dusting
  • butter or oil for pans
Instructions
Lady Fingers
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 C) then line 2 baking trays with parchment and grease with butter or oil. Place egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer with whisk attachment and beat until soft peaks form, Slowly add in 2 tablespoons of sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  2. Scrape whites into a separate medium bowl and add yolks and ⅔ cup sugar to mixer bowl. Beat until light in color and frothy. Add extracts, salt, and baking powder and mix well.
  3. Fold in egg white mixture with a rubber spatula until mostly mixed, then sift in flour and continue folds until evenly combined.
  4. Fit a piping bag with a ½ inch round tip and fill with mixture. Pipe into 4½ inch lady fingers, about ½ inch apart on trays. Dust with powdered sugar and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned on the outside. Remove and cool.
Tiramisu:
  1. Combine yolks and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer (no need to wash after lady fingers) and beat until light in color. Add mascarpone, salt, and vanilla and beat until smooth. You should have about 3 cups, so take 1½ cups out and add nutella to the remaining mix and beat until creamy smooth.
  2. You can make this in a trifle dish, 13x9 pan, or individual glasses. Mix coffee and KahlĂșa in a small bowl and dip lady fingers as you add them. Layer coffee dipped lady fingers, then white cream, then nutella cream, then a dusting of cocoa and repeat layers until dish or glasses are full.
Notes
If you can't find macarpone you can replace it with: ⅔ cup softened cream cheese, ⅓ cup heavy whipping cream, and 2 tablespoons sour cream, beaten together until smooth
