Una amica greca mi ha chiesto la ricetta del tiramisu. Ecco quella che ho imparato da mia mamma

Nosy there is no original recipe of tiramisu.... Every Italian family does it with it's own recipe.
I can tell you as I prepare it.

- packet of Biscotti savoiardi (I think in English they are called "Lady fingers")
- 500 gr of mascarpone cheese
- 3 coffee cups of coffee (Italian coffee, if it's prepared with the moka coffee machine it's even better. I don't Know if you can use Greek coffee),
- 150 gr sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon of Rum
- Cocoa powder

Beat sugar with the egg till it’ puffy than slowly add the mascarpone and the Rum and mix well.
Dip the biscuits into the coffe .
As you dip one biscuit put it in a pan. Make a layer of biscuits and cover it with half of the mascarpone cream. Make a second layer of biscuits and cover it with remaining mascarpone cream.
Cover the tiramisu with cocoa powder.
Put the tiramisu at least a couple of hours in the fridge before serving
