My oldest daughter’s favorite dessert is tiramisu. So every year I make some sort of tiramisu dessert for her. I like to make it different every year also, so it’s some kind of a surprise. Well this year was a double surprise! The cake turned out wonderful, and looked really good also; well for awhile…anyway.

1 Cup Amaretto
1 1/2 Cups Brewed Espresso or Strong Black Coffee
16 Ounces Mascarpone Cheese

With electric mixer on high with whisk attachment, whisk egg yolks and sugar together for about five minutes or until thick and creamy. Add in 1/4 cup of the amaretto, 1/4 of the espresso and mascarpone cheese, whisk on medium speed until smooth.
