Cookies and Cream Tiramisu

by Yejiskitchenstories

This cookies and cream tiramisu is made with chocolate sandwich cookies dipped in coffee, layered with silky mascarpone filling— a twist on a classic dessert!

What you’ll need:

  • Chocolate sandwich cookies: I used Back to Nature’s Classic creme cookies for this recipe
  • Coffee: I used strongly brewed coffee for this but feel free to use espresso.
  • Heavy whipping cream: Make sure it has at least 35% milkfat to ensure soft peaks when whipping.
  • Mascarpone cheese: This recipe calls for mascarpone cheese, which is mild and creamy, but you can substitute it with cream cheese.
  • Egg yolks: to create an extra luxurious silky filling.
  • Vanilla paste: I used vanilla paste, but you can use vanilla extract instead.
  • Cocoa powder: for dusting the top of the tiramisu.

How to make Cookies and Cream Tiramisu:

  1. Make the filling. In a mixing bowl, add your egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla paste. Place the mixing bowl over a double boiler on low heat, and beat the yolk-sugar mixture until it is fluffy and has thickened. We are looking for a light cream color!
  2. Whisk the yolk mixture. Take the mixing bowl off the double boiler and add your softened mascarpone cheese to the whipped yolk. Using a whisk, gently fold in the mascarpone cheese just until incorporated, making sure not to over-mix it!
  3. Make the whipped cream. In another bowl, using an electric mixer, whip the cream until soft peaks form. We want a fluffy, silky texture here. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture just until combined.
  4. Assemble. Dip the chocolate sandwich cookies in the strongly brewed coffee and place them in a single layer of an 8″x 8″ dish. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture on top of the cookies. Repeat this step with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Chill the tiramisu. Cover and refrigerate the tiramisu for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  6. Dust cocoa powder over the top right before serving.
