Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS TIRAMISU?
Tiramisu is a coffee flavored traditional Italian dessert. This dessert is made of savoiardi cookies (also known as ladyfingers) dipped in coffee, mascarpone and cream custard, eggs and cocoa powder. The meaning of the word tiramisu is "pick me up" or "cheer me up”.
CAN WE MAKE TIRAMISU CUPS AHEAD OF TIME?
Tiramisu can be made 1 to 2 days ahead and stored (covered) in refrigerator. It will keep for up to 4 days in total. You can leave tiramisu out of the refrigerator for up to two-three hours during serving before it will begin to spoil. Remember to dust with powdered sugar just before serving.
WHAT CAN WE USE INSTEAD OF ALCOHOL IN TIRAMISU?
If you don’t like the flavor of alcohol in your dessert you can just omit it from the recipe.
CAN WE MAKE TIRAMISU CUPS WITH EGGS?
Yes, I have another version of tiramisu recipe here: classic tiramisu recipe. The only thing you will need to adjust if you are making this recipe in glasses or cups is to divide the recipe I mentioned in the link above by two. That's it, the rest is the same process.
