  • 1 cup 1 strong brewed coffee, cooled

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 Limoncello liqueur

  • 3 large 3 egg yolks

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 granulated sugar

  • 1 cup 1 mascarpone cheese

  • 1 1/2 cups 1 1/2 heavy cream

  • 1 teaspoon 1 vanilla extract

  • 24 24 -30 ladyfinger cookies

  • Zest of 2 lemons

  • Fresh lemon slices, for garnish (optional)

  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish (optional)


  • In a shallow dish, combine the cooled brewed coffee and Limoncello liqueur. Set aside.
  • In a heatproof mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and granulated sugar.
  • Place the mixing bowl over a pot of simmering water (double boiler) and whisk constantly until the mixture thickens and becomes pale in color. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese until it’s smooth and creamy.
  • In another bowl, whip the heavy cream and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold the mascarpone cheese into the egg yolk mixture until well combined.
  • Then, fold in the whipped cream until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Quickly dip each ladyfinger into the coffee-Limoncello mixture, ensuring they are soaked but not soggy.
  • Arrange a layer of dipped ladyfingers in the bottom of your serving dish.
  • Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.
  • Sprinkle half of the lemon zest over the mascarpone layer.
  • Repeat with another layer of dipped ladyfingers, mascarpone mixture, and the remaining lemon zest.
  • Cover the dish and refrigerate the Limoncello Tiramisu for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Before serving, garnish with fresh lemon slices and mint leaves, if desired.
