Tiramisu Al Vin Santo

By David Rocco’s Dolce Vita 


– 1 lb (500 g) cantuccini cookies, chopped
– 1 cup (250 ml) Vin Santo
– 1 lb (500 g) mascarpone cheese
– 2 tbsp (30 ml) sugar
– 3.5 oz (100 g) bittersweet chocolate, chopped


Place the cookies on the bottom of a cake pan, creating a base for the tiramisu. Splash half the Vin Santo over the cookies and set aside. The exterior of the cookie should be wet while the interior should remain somewhat dry.

In a bowl, add mascarpone, Vin Santo, sugar and chocolate. Whisk together until creamy and thoroughly mixed.

Spread the cream mixture evenly over the cookies, making sure all the cookies are completely covered. If you like you may also sprinkle the top of the Tiramisu with chopped chocolate and cookies.

Unlike traditional tiramisu, this version can be served immediately.
