Quick Tiramisu

Once upon a time Chef Gordon Ramsey had a cook along.. We actually participated as a family! Each of the older kids came in to help on one of the segments. It was very fun! We pulled one of our little TV's into the kitchen and tried to keep up... which was NOT easy! This recipe is from that show.

1 C. Mascarpone
1/4 C. Powdered sugar
4 T. Marsala, or sweet dessert wine (we used an alcohol free flavoring that we had on hand I think it was hazelnut flavored)
1 t. vanilla extract
3/4 C. Heavy Cream
1 C. Cold Strong Coffee (We omitted this part since we do not drink coffee)
4 Italian Ladyfingers
piece of Chocolate to grate as garnish

Sift the powdered sugar into the Mascarpone. Add the vanilla extract and flavoring to the Mascarpone and mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk the cream till it forms soft peaks.
Mix the cream and the mascarpone together and refrigerate.
Break the Ladyfingers in half and dip very briefly in the cold coffee. Divide them into the bottom of 4 serving glasses. Spoon the Mascarpone mixture on top.
Grate over a little chocolate.

These were VERY yummy!! And so pretty! I added a mint leaf from our garden too.
