Tiramisu cookies

Tiramisu is one of those desserts I have always loved, I remember buying tiramisu ice cream with my dad every Saturday when I was little and anxiously waiting for dinner time when I could finally eat it. So it’s no surprise that I am now trying to recreate it as much as I can.

The downside to it is that I really need to get it right, so for this cookies there were a few things that were non negotiable for me: they had to be super creamy, have a clear coffee taste and not too much of an overpowering chocolate flavour. It actually took me 4 attempts to get them right, but it finally happened.

So what’s in them?

  • Brown and granulated sugar: I tend to do a 50/50 sugar split when I make cookies, however, for this one I added more granulated sugar than brown sugar
  • Mascarpone cheese: Mascarpone is such a key ingredient for these cookies, it gives them not only the creamiest texture, but also a very creamy flavour
  • Ground coffee: this is particularly important! The coffee granules are the key to an amazing coffee after taste, I actually used ground coffee from the coffee pods I use at home
  • Chocolate: cut into very small pieces to spread out better and not overpower

These cookies are delicious and feel like a bit like a baby of mine, so I hope you love them as much as I do!
