French Food Friday...

recipe and photo from here

On Christmas day we had tiramisu as a dessert. Although it is Italian, I think the French love it as much as the Italians. 
Note any plain type of biscuits will do, you could even use chocolate biscuits it is really up to you.
The French tend to use speculoos but the recipe works with most biscuits.

I love the way that the French use a lot of glasses to serve desserts, our hostess did the same on Christmas day and they really looked the part.

Ingredients (for 8 people):

- 500 g mascarpone- 5 eggs- 100 g caster sugar- 200 g Italian biscuits "Pavesini"- 300 mls of very warm coffee- 30 g of unsweetened cocoa powder

Break the eggs, separate the whites from the yolks in two bowls. Add the sugar to the yolks and whisk until the mixture whitens and forms ribbons when the whisk is lifted, then cmbine with the mascarpone. 

Whisk egg whites with a pinch of salt.Carefully mix the mascarpone mixture and the egg whites together  with a spatula, mixing from the bottom up.
In a dish, put a layer of biscuits, then a layer of the mascarpone mixture. Then another layer of biscuits, and finish with a layer of mascarpone. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.Just before serving, sprinkle with sifted cocoa.

très bonne fin d'année, Leeann x
