 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Heavy cream
  • 3 tb Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c Ricotta cheese
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 c Sour cream
  • 1/4 c Dark rum
  • -Ladyfingers
  • 1 1/2 c Strong coffee
  • -Unsweetened cocoa
  • -for garnish, sifted.


Beat heavy cream with sugar until stiff. Set aside. Using same beater, beat
together ricotta, sugar and sour cream. Gently fold cream and cheese mixes
together; add rum. Line an 8 x l3 inch baking dish with lady fingers that
have been soaked with the coffee. Pour cream mix over the cake and let sit
at least 4 hours or overnight. When set, top with unsweetened cocoa. This
is from the Sacred Heart Church of Georgetown CT.

The authentic tiramisu (pick me up) calls for marscapone cheese, which is
relatively hard to get and expensive. I have found the following substitute
works well. Be sure you use firm or stale lady fingers so it doesn't get
mushy. From: Fred Towner
