Tiramisu

5-minute Amaretti Tiramisu hack

0 comments

This has to be the simplest Tiramisu that you will make using my Amaretti biscuits. Refer to the recipe on my website on how to make Amaretti biscuits or you can easily buy these from the shops. For this recipe I use one of my favourite liqueurs – Strega. Strega is an Italian herbal liqueur that is yellow in colour (which comes from saffron) and it is made up of approximately 70 herbal ingredients including mint, cinnamon, juniper and fennel giving it a very complex aniseed flavour that is very similar to Chartreuse. If you don’t have Straga you can use Masala Wine or any liqueur you like. The biscuits soak up the shot of coffee quite quickly and in this recipe, I use a fantastic dairy-free, plant-based product from Loco which is made from coconut cream. This is available at your local Coles Supermarket. You can easily use dollop fresh cream or thickened cream that you have whisked until soft peaks instead.
