Pat Butler lives in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada, where she says nobody had ever heard of Tiramisu. She began a campaign to “convert the masses,” found a recipe that tasted somewhat like the Tiramisu she had tried in San Francisco, and experimented with it until she had a version that everybody loves. Pat was generous enough to share her recipe with us.
  • EGG YOLKS, 3 extra large
  • SUGAR, 1/4 cup
  • GRAND MARNIER, 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup

  1. Prepare the filling by beating the egg yolks with the sugar until lemon colored.

  5. Beat the mascarpone/cream cheese until smooth.
  6. Slowly beat in the cooled zabaglione custard.
  7. Whip the cream until soft peaks form.
  8. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cheese/custard mixture. Set aside.
