The Freshman Cook: The Finale!~Tiramisu Mousse

My favorite part of just about every meal is dessert. What can I say? I have a sweet tooth! I truly do believe there is absolutely nothing wrong with having dessert first!!! The dessert for our Homestyle Lasagna Dinner is Tiramisu Mousse. I have made this many times; as it was quite a popular choice when I worked for a catering company. It differs from the classic Tiramisu because we won’t be using ladyfingers soaked in coffee. But you will love it. A good thing about this dessert is that it must be made ahead of time so that the mousse has time to set. So there are no last minute preparations to do. You can make this dessert and leave it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it. Here’s what you need:

1 cup Mascarpone Cheese

3/4 cup Granulated Sugar

1/4 cup Brewed Coffee

2 Egg Yolks, beaten

1 cup Whipping Cream, beaten to soft peaks

Cocoa Powder or Semisweet Chocolate Bar

Put your Mascarpone Cheese in your mixing bowl.

Add your Sugar.

Add your Brewed Coffee.

Add your 2 beaten Eggs.

Mix your ingredients together.

In a separate bowl, mix your heavy whipping cream. We have 

made this before back on 7/16/10. If you don’t recall, just go to

Beat your cream to soft peaks, like this.

Fold the cream into the Tiramisu mix.  

Carefully pour the mousse into

individual goblets.

You can make these about 3 hours ahead of time, then

chill in the refrigerator. When it’s time to serve, pull them o ut, and shave 

chocolate over the top, or sprinkle cocoa powder over the top.

Isn’t it pretty!!
