Coconut Eggnog Tiramisu
I love tiramisu so this year I decided to try making a holiday coconut eggnog tiramisu. I cheat and use packaged ladyfingers but you can make your own if you like.
- 1 package store-bought ladyfingers
- 8 egg yolks
- 1-1/4 cup sugar
- 4 ounces bourbon
- 1 3/4 cups heavy whiping cream
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 8 oz mascarpone cheese, room temperature
- 4 oz Brandy mixed with 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Set an aluminum bowl over a pot of water. Add egg yolks and sugar to aluminum bowl and place over pot of water. Slowly bring water in pot to a low boil while whisking for 10 minutes slowly adding the bourbon. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the heavy cream, nutmeg, cinnamon and coconut milk until it forms stiff peaks.
Add the softened mascarpone cheese to the egg-sugar mixture and combine. Slowly fold in the whipped cream mixture into the egg mixture.
Dunk each ladyfinger into the brandy sugar mixture and layer into an 8x8 pan. Add half of the egg/cream mixture, add another layer of brandy dunked ladyfingers, then the remaining egg/cream mixture. Dust with cocoa powder and nutmeg and cover in refrigerator for 3 hours.
