Tiramisu - A Real Pick Me Upper

My son is being indulged totally these days thanks to his Board Exams. All he needs to say is " Mummy, I need this to eat" and I go out of my way to make it for him. I guess I feel he is studying so hard, he needs these treats to up his spirits too.

He is extremely fond of Tiramisu and so when I saw this easy recipe on the internet and happened to have cream cheese in the refrigerator, I decided to make it pronto. It was very simple to make and when we tasted it later, it was quite delicious. Got good reviews with the family.

So here is the recipe...


12-16 Chocolate chip cookies
120 grams Cream Cheese
100 ml Whipping cream
4 tablespoons Caster sugar
1/3 cup hot water
1 tablespoon Instant coffee powder
2 tablespoons Kahlua or any coffee flavored liqueur
Chocolate shavings for garnish


Soften the cream cheese and then beat well with the sugar and cream.

Mix the instant coffee powder in the hot water and add the Kahlua.

Keep ready 4 cups to serve the dessert in.

Spoon in half a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture in each cup.

Dip four chocolate chip cookies in the coffee mixture and place one in each cup.

Repeat with two or three more layers .

Chill for a minimum of 2 hours or even overnight.

Garnish with chocolate shavings and serve.
