The Cheapbyte's award winning Tiramisu
It won 1st place in an office competition
and 2nd place at my company bake-off
8oz Mascarpone cheese
4oz Cream cheese cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 egg yolks
3 cups of whip topping (8oz container)
2 package lady fingers (about 48)
3/4 cup of coffee liquor (mix with ½ cup of coffee and ¼-cup chocolate syrup)
3/4 cup of fudge topping (warmed prior to spreading on lady fingers)
Mix eggs yolks and sugar in a double boiler, cook for 8-10 minutes stirring constantly until thick. Remove egg/sugar mixture from heat and mix in the cream cheese until smooth. Let mixture cool for 20 minutes before adding the mascarpone cheese. Mix on medium speed for 5 minutes.
Take the cheese mixture and gently fold into the whipped topping until blended
Lightly toast lady fingers. Take the toasted lady fingers and quickly soak in the coffee liquor mixture for 2 seconds then line the bottom of an 8" x 8" with half of the ladyfingers. Cover each ladyfinger with a light coat of fudge. Take 1/3 of the cheese mixture and cover the ladyfingers. Repeat. When finished, refrigerate for several hours until firm.
