Amy based her tiramisu recipe off a version from Emeril Lagasse’s Tiramisu, altered it a little, and made a “monster” one for a party. She says, “I doubled it, but not all of the ingredients — like the heavy cream, when doubling the recipe, I only added one more cup of it. And, I kept the egg whites the same.”
  • MARSALA WINE, 2 tablespoons
  • EGGS, 3 separated
  • SUGAR, 4 tablespoons for yolks, + 3 tablespoons for whites
  • SALT, pinch, for egg whites
  • HEAVY CREAM, 2 cups (beat with a couple pinches of sugar)
  1. Combine and blend the Mascarpone and Marsala.
  2. Combine sugar with the yolks and dissolve in a bowl over boiling water.
  3. Combine until light in color (about 3 minutes).
  4. Beat whipping cream with a pinch of sugar until it holds a peak, not too dry.
  5. Put the egg mixture, hot from the stove (DO NOT WAIT) into the mascarpone mixture.
  6. Fold 1/3 of the cheese mixture into the whipped cream, then fold in the second 1/3, then the remaining 1/3.
  7. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until foamy, then add sugar and beat until stiff.
  8. Add all whites to the cheese mixture and fold.
  9. (HeavenlyTiramisu’s note: Amy doesn’t mention LADYFINGERS or coffee, but her cream mixture can be layered with LADYFINGERS soaked with strong coffee.)
