Olive Garden Tiramisu - Copycat
egg yolks
2 tbsps milk
23 cup granulated sugar
2 cups mascarpone cheese
14 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
1Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring it to a boil over medium/high heat, then reduce the heat so that the water is simmering.
2Whisk egg yolks, milk and sugar together in a medium metal bowl, then place the bowl on top of the saucepan.
3Stir the mixture often for 8 to 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
4Remove the bowl from the heat, and to it add the 2 cups of mascarpone cheese and the vanilla.
5Whisk the cheese until it smooths out.
6In a separate bowl, whip the cream with an electric mixer until thick.
7Slowly fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until it's completely incorporated, but don't over mix or it will lose its fluff and flatten out.
8Combine the espresso and Kahlua in a large, shallow bowl.
9One-by-one, quickly dip each ladyfinger in the espresso.
10The ladyfinger will soak up the espresso like a sponge, so dip quickly.
11Arrange half of the dipped ladyfingers side-by-side on the bottom of an 8 x 8 inch serving dish or baking pan.
12Spoon about half of the cheese mixture over the ladyfingers, then add another layer of soaked ladyfingers on top of the cheese mixture.
13Spoon the remaining cheese mixture over the second layer of ladyfingers and spread it evenly.
14Put two t. of cocoa powder in a tight-mesh strainer and gently tap the side of the strainer to add an even dusting of cocoa powder over the top of the dessert.
15Cover and chill for several hours.
16To serve, slice the dessert twice across and down creating 9 even portions.
22 ladyfingers
