Here is my solution to an easy, no cook Tiramisu that you can fix in a hurry just for the two... of you. (rhyme = yikes)
Tiramisu for Two
makes two parfait glass servings
1/2 cup of whipping cream
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
4 ounces of mascarpone cheese
8 lady fingers
1/3 cup of strong coffee or espresso
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 small chocolate bar
To make the cream filling, whip the whipping cream until thickened - about 3 minutes. Add sugar and vanilla and whip together until stiff. Incorporate in mascarpone cheese slowly until well combined. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together coffee and sugar. In two parfait glasses or other sort of individual serving bowls, put two lady fingers in the bottom of each. Pour 1/4 of the coffee mixture on top of the lady fingers in each glass. Spoon in 1/4 of mascarpone cheese and whipped cream mixture into each. Top with two more lady fingers and coffee mixture. Top with the remaining cream mixture.
To finish, make chocolate shavings with a vegetable peeler on a bar of chocolate. Refrigerate up to 2 days.
Creamy, coffee goodness!
