February Book Club Meeting Dessert Recipe

I thought I'd share a terrific dessert recipe. I make this TIRAMISU TRIFLE all of the time, but it's always a big hit. It's great for book club meetings since it's so easy to make.

TIRAMISU TRIFLE

8 ounces mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups whipping cream, divided
1 cup hot water
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules (or use strongly brewed coffee)
1/4 cup coffee liqueur
2 (3 ounce) packages ladyfingers
1 teaspoon cocoa

Beat cheese, sugar, and 1/2 cup whipping cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.

Beat remain 2 cups whipping cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold into cheese mixture.

Stir together 1 cup hot water and coffee granules until dissolved. Stir in liqueur.

Split ladyfingers in half, and brush cut sides of ladyfingers evenly with coffee mixture.

Arrange one-fourth of ladyfingers in bottom of a 4 quart trifle bowl. Top with one-fourth of cheese mixure. Repear layers 3 times. Sprinkle with cocoa. Chill tiramisu at least 2 hours.

Hi there. I just wanted to say - I linked to this recipe with a "hint hint" to my husband. He made it on valentine's day. It's delicious. Awesome recipe, thank you. Lots of leftovers!
