While we are in the midst of our Drop Everything Campaign, TAU supporters continue to drop everything to give back.

With just over two weeks left in the campaign, CFTAU is thanking leaders like Shawna and The Morris and Rosalind Goodman Family Foundation for their support, dropping everything for TAU’s urgent COVID-19 Drive, and urging others to follow their lead.

Comes from the word “Pick me Up”-
During these days of Corona and isolation preparing this tiramisu will sure bring a smile to those around you! 

Serves 16-20

2-pounds marscapone cheese, at room temperature

1 ½ cups heavy cream (35%)

1 ¼ cups sugar

2 Tsps pure vanilla extract

2 ½ cups cold strong Italian espresso coffee

¼ cup brandy or dark rum

40 ladyfinger cookies

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Shaved semisweet chocolate for garnish

You can prepare this either in a medium size trifle bowl or a 9 x 13 dish.

  • In a stand mixer beat the marscapone, cream, sugar and vanilla for two minutes until thick and smooth. 
  • In a shallow bowl mix the cold coffee with the liquor.
  • Lightly dip the ladyfingers into the liquid, one at a time and place them very close together in your bowl or dish. 
  • Spread half of the marscapone mixture over the ladyfingers.
  • Sprinkle the cocoa powder over the marscapone through a fine mesh straine(IMPORTANT-DO NOT WANT CLUMPS). Repeat. 
  • Top with the remaining marscapone making another layer.
  • Sprinkle with the cocoa powder again. 
  • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate several hours. The longer it rests the more flavourful.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle some shaved semi sweet chocolate on top
