Farm, Fresh, Family - Easy Italian Christmas Dessert!

Easy Tiramisu for Kids

Here's a favorite Italian dessert with a kid-friendly twist so the kids can help make and enjoy!


Serves 4 to 6

  • 8 oz. Mascarpone cheese
  • 8 oz. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 ladyfingers
  • 1/2-1 cup decaf coffee
  • 1 tbsp. almond extract
  • 3 tsp. baking cocoa


Beat Mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar together until well blended. Add whipping cream and beat until stiff peaks form. Add almond extract and mix gently until fully combined. Pour the decaf coffee into a small bowl and dip each side of the ladyfinger into the decaf coffee for a few seconds (dip for a longer time for softer cookies). Create one layer of lady fingers in an 8X8X2 baking dish. Top with a  layer of cream. Create another layer of decafe coffee-dipped lady fingers and finish with another layer of cream. Sprinkle with baking cocoa. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until filling is set. Serve with fresh raspberries or blue berries and hot cocoa!
