Recipe: Tiramisu from Alberto’s on Fifth in Naples, Florida


Alberto’s on Fifth’s TIRAMISU


6 egg yolks

3 tablespoons sugar

1 pound mascarpone cheese

11/2 cups strong espresso, cooled

2 teaspoons dark rum

24 pieces of packaged ladyfingers

1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate shavings, for garnish


1 In a large bowl, using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale, about 5 minutes.

2 Add mascarpone cheese and beat until smooth.

3 Add one tablespoon of espresso and mix until thoroughly combined.

4 In a small shallow dish add remaining espresso and rum.

5 Dip each ladyfinger into espresso for only 5 seconds. If the ladyfingers soak too long, they will fall apart.

6 Place the soaked ladyfinger on the bottom of a 13-by-9 inch baking dish, breaking them in half if necessary to fit the bottom.

7 Spread half of the mascarpone mixture evenly over the ladyfingers.

8 Arrange another layer of soaked ladyfingers and top with remaining mascarpone mixture.

9 Cover tiramisu with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours.

10 Before serving, sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
