Prepare the Espresso Soaking Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of brewed espresso.
  2. Heat over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, and the mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and let it cool.

Whip Up the Creamy Filling

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 8 oz of mascarpone cheese, 3/4 cup of heavy cream, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon of pure almond extract, and 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.
  2. Use an electric mixer to whip the mixture until it becomes thick and fluffy.

Assemble the Layers

  1. Start by dipping the ladyfingers one by one into the cooled espresso-soaking syrup. Make sure not to soak them for too long; a quick dip is sufficient.
  2. Arrange a layer of soaked ladyfingers at the bottom of your serving dish.
  3. Spread half of the creamy filling over the ladyfingers.
  4. Repeat the process with another layer of soaked ladyfingers and the remaining creamy filling.

How to Store Almond Tiramisu?

If, by some small chance, you have any leftover almond tiramisu, make sure to put it in a container that seals tightly and keep it in the fridge. You can enjoy it for up to 3 days when it’s stored this way.

Recipe Variations

You’ve got choices when it comes to making almond tiramisu your own. You can switch out the almonds for nuts like hazelnuts or pistachios to give it a different twist. If you’re a chocolate lover, you can even sprinkle some grated dark chocolate in there. And if you prefer your dessert without any alcohol, just skip the amaretto liqueur. It’s your creation, so you can make it just the way you like it!

Tips to make the perfect Almond Tiramisu

I use brewed coffee for the best coffee taste in this dessert. When you put the cookies in the coffee, don’t keep them in there for too long. Just a quick dip is perfect, so they don’t get too wet. When making the creamy filling, taste it as you go and add sugar until it’s just how you like it. Some people like it really sweet, while others like me like it less sweet. If you really like almonds, you can add a special almond liquid amaretto to the coffee. It gives your dessert an even stronger almond taste.
