Tasty Tiramisu


  • 6 egg yolks
  • 6 oz. white granulated sugar
  • ⅔ cup whole milk
  • 16 oz. mascarpone cheese
  • 4-6 oz. freshly brewed coffee
  • 2 oz. dark run and coffee liquor
  • 1 oz. pernod
  • 6-8 oz. package ladyfinger cookies
  • 1 tbsp. or as needed cocoa powder

Ingredients for Whip Cream

  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until evenly mixed. Whisk in whole milk and cook over medium heat in a non-reactive pan, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil gently for 1 minute; remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cover tightly and refrigerate until the custard cools completely - about an hour.
  2. In a medium bowl, whip heavy cream with vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  3. . Once custard has properly chilled, fold mascarpone into custard until smooth. Add Pernod for some extra flavor.
  4. Repeat layers and sprinkle with cocoa. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, until mixture has set.
