Tiramisł means "pull me up" and aptly describes the Italian dessert made from lady fingers, espresso coffee, mascarpone cheese, egg whites, sugar, and marsala wine. The biscuits are sprinkled with strong coffee and the marsala, and then embedded in a thick rich custard. Sometimes chocolate is also used, but that is not traditional.

Recipe for 4-6 persons:
