  • SERVINGS: 10
  • MAKE-AHEAD

It's hard to believe that this espresso-flavored Italian dessert (its name means "pick me up") joined the culinary lexicon in the 1960s, when it was invented in the Italian city of Treviso.

  1. 5 large egg whites
  2. Salt
  3. 4 large egg yolks
  4. 1/3 cup sugar
  5. Two 8 3/4-ounce containers mascarpone, at room temperature
  6. 1/2 cup strong brewed espresso, cooled
  7. About 17 ladyfingers (from a 17-ounce package)
  8. Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting
  9. 1/2 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate curls, made with a vegetable peeler
  1. In a medium bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt at high speed until firm peaks form. In another medium bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until pale and thickened. At low speed, beat the mascarpone into the yolks. Fold the beaten whites into the mascarpone mixture.
  2. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture in a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Pour the espresso into a shallow bowl. Dip the ladyfingers in the espresso until evenly moistened and arrange in a layer on the mascarpone mixture; you may need to break a few in half to make them fit. Spread the remaining mascarpone mixture on top. Sift cocoa powder over the tiramisù. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Scatter the chocolate curls evenly over the tiramisù and serve.
Make Ahead The tiramisù can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
