maja’s simple tiramisu recipe (serves about 10 ppl)

1 packet of savoiardi (italian biscuits aka lange vingers in dutch)
4-5 cups of coffee
2-3 packets of vanilla sugar (or a few spoonfuls of any sugar, to taste)
500g-750g of mascarpone cheese
amaretto di saronno (to taste)
grated chocolate or powdered cinnamon

brew quite strong espresso coffee. when ready, pour it in a soup bowl and add the sugar. let it cool a bit, until you can dip your fingers inside without getting 3rd grade burns ;). in the mean time, mix the mascarpone with amaretto, adding a few spoonfuls of amaretto at the time. you should get a smooth cream. if you don't want too much alcohol, you can soften the mascarpone with cream, or egg yolk.. Prepare a deep dish (best is if it is rectangular). Dip each individual biscuit in the coffee and layer them side by side in the dish. pour a part of the cheese mixture on top. repeat until you run out of some ingredients. finish with mascarpone cream on top. sprinkle the grated chocolate or cinnamon on top. leave to cool for at least 2 hours.
