Due to the fact we have an important guest for lunch today, I won't name names, but it's my niece from London ;)) I decided to make a quick dessert.
And what dessert is quicker than Tiramisu? I know that you have to leave it in the fridge for few hours, but it's sooo easy to make, and the taste is heaven :D

Here is the recipe:
4 tablespoons of espresso coffee, 1 tablespoon of grappa, 3 eggs, separated, 1/2 cup of sugar, 8 oz of mascarpone cheese, 24 savoiardi biscuits, 1 oz of sweet chocolate, grated

In a small bowl, combine the coffee and grappa, and set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until they are thick, and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks together with the sugar until you get a thick consistency and the mixture is a lemon color. Add the mascarpone cheese and blend the mix.
Fold the egg whites into the cheese mixture. Folding simply refers to using a wooden spoon to lift the mixture from the bottom of the bowl and turning it over. Do this once, turn the bowl a little bit and repeat this same process until all the ingredients in the mix are fully incorporated. Don’t overdo it because you want to maintain as much volume as possible.
Place half of the savoiardi biscuits in the bottom of a 10 inch square baking dish. Sprinkle the biscuits with half of the coffee mixture. Cover with half of the cheese mixture, and repeat the process.
Refrigerate the tiramisu for 4 hours. Serve with grated sweet chocolate.

Instead of the savoiardi biscuits you can use the leftover cake or panettone from Christmas :D
