No need to head out to an expensive Italian restaurant to enjoy the tastes of a classic tiramisu. Our Test Kitchen has come up with an easy version that satisfies your cravings without a lot of work or expense.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (16-ounce) package mascarpone cheese (see note)
  • 1 1/4 cups whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brewed espresso
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 2 (3-ounce) packages ladyfingers
  • 4 (1-ounce) bittersweet chocolate squares, grated
What To Do:
  1. In a bowl using an electric mixer on high speed beat first 4 ingredients 30 seconds, or just until blended.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together espresso and rum .
  3. Arrange 1 package ladyfingers in bottom of a 3-quart bowl or trifle dish; brush with half espresso mixture. Layer half mascarpone cheese mixture over ladyfingers; sprinkle with half grated chocolate. Repeat layers. Cover and chill 8 hours.

Mascarpone is a soft, fresh triple-cream dessert cheese with a fluffy texture. It's often sold in plastic tubs, if you can't find it, substitute 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened; 1/3 cup sour cream; and 1/4 cup whipping cream, beaten until blended, for 16 ounces of mascarpone cheese.
