Hester Creek Tiramisu

When we lived in the Okanagan, we used to attend the cooking class dinners put on with Chef Roger Gillespie at Hester Creek Winery. Chef Roger gave me permission years ago to use his recipes and lo and behold! when gathering together all my cook books etc., I found this and I just had to share with you.

  • 5 tbsp. sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 500 g mascarpone cheese
  • 24 lady fingers (approximately)
  • 4 tbsp. strong espresso coffee
  • 4 tbsp. Amaretta
  • cocoa powder

Beat the cream with 1 tbsp. sugar until stiff. Whisk the yolks with remaining sugar until creamy. Stir in the mascarpone a bit at a time and incorporate the cream.

Line baking dish with the lady fingers. Mix the amaretto and coffee together and sprinkle over lady fingers. but do not soak.

Spread half of the cream over lady fingers and repeat.
