Our Very Own Tiramisu

Whitney had the idea to try making some tiramisu. Some of the recipes were rather involved, so making the best of the tools, time, and ingredients we had, we ended up combining this recipe with this one (both from Eating Well). For this experiment, I would say it came out with too much coffee and was rather excessive with the chocolate, and perhaps had a bit too much cinnamon. However, I still found it rather enjoyable.

6 oz ladyfingers
4 oz mascarpone
4 oz cream cheese
1 c strong brewed coffee
4 tbsp brandy
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp confectioners sugar
Baking chocolate

1. Lightly toast ladyfingers.
2. Combine mascarpone, softened cream cheese, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. Blend well, and adjust ingredients to taste.
3. Combine coffee and brandy. Brush mixture on lady fingers (we dipped them, which resulted in a too strong flavor) and place in small dish or loaf pan. Layer ladyfingers and cheese mixture, topping with ladyfingers.
4. Melt chocolate and drizzle on top.
5. Chill in fridge 30 min.
6. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and serve.

Placing the layers, with some coffee/brandy for dipping
Turned out decent!
