Meg's tiramisu

Meg sealed the deal as my good friend when she handed over this recipe!

Lady Finger cookies
1 cup Mascarpone cheese (or 2/3 cup cream cheese mixed with 1/3 cup sour cream)
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup very strong coffee
whipped cream (opt)
toffee chips (opt)

Mix sugar and cheese. Cover the bottom of the dish with lady fingers. Drizzle coffee over them until well moistened. Spread a layer of cheese mixture over cookies. Repeat until cookies or cheese run out. Top with whipped cream and toffee chips. Let sit overnight before serving.

- use hot chocolate instead of coffee
- use cream instead of coffee and layer berries or other fruit
- add 2 T coffee liqueur to coffee (this is the original recipe)
- add 2 egg yolks to cheese mixture to make more rich
