Donna Hay never lets me down.
One of my all time favorite cookbooks is from her called "The Instant Cook".
What I lurve about this book, is that just about every recipe has a photo, and she gives you different versions of certain dishes.
Her tiramisu is off the charts-and SO easy:
1 3/4 c cream
1 lb mascarpone (insert giada's annoying accent)
1 c coffee liquer (this preggers girl is living on the edge)
26 lady fingers (NOT an easy thing to find in the KC)
cocoa powder for dusting
Beat heavy cream in bowl with mixer until soft peaks form. (**I added a couple tbsp powdered sugar-needed a little sweetness**).
Fold in mascarpone. Set aside.
Combine liquer and coffww.
Quickly dip both sides of half the biscuits in the coffee mixture & use them to layer the base of a 4 pint serving dish.
Spoon half of the cream mixture over the layer of biscuits.
Repeat with remaining biscuits and cream.
Dust with cocoa powder.
Refrigerate at least one hour.
I also made this version:
replace the coffee and liquer with 1 cup dessert wine (I used Muscato).
Layer 20 oz defrosted frozen raspberries over biscuit and cream mixture.
