Dainty and delicious! These elegant sandwiched cookies resemble and taste just like pastries. Tiramisu is one of the most popular Italian cakes. Tiramisu is Italian for “pick me up” and that’s exactly what these mini sweets are begging you to do.
MiniTiramisuLadyfingers – little bites of Italian bliss. A delicately thrilling addition to your holiday baking lineup. The cookies are tender, mildly boozy fingers filled with rich creamy mascarpone and coffee flavor liqueur. Each sandwich is kissed with some decorative piped filling and topped with a chocolate-covered coffee bean, MiniTiramisuLadyfingers are made to mimic traditional Tiramisu.
Every Christmas one of my favorite traditions is to bake homemade cream horns, to add to our family dessert table. Italian Cream Horns are delicious little pastries that are made with puff pastry dough that is wrapped around metal molds, baked until crisp, and then filled with cream. The cream filling can vary from a rich pastry cream, to a buttercream, or simple whipped cream. I like to use a sweet Ricotta filling, known as cannoli filling. With this batch of puff pastry, I made cream horns and mini cream puffs. The cream puffs were filled with whipped cream, vanilla pudding and custard. I will be honest with you this year Christmas came too fast, I really didn’t have a chance to do all the baking on my list, especially a Christmas cake. You cannot have Christmas dessert with no cake, so with a little imagination, stress for time I came up with CAKE! Not your usual cake and not what I had planned to make for Christmas this year, but it will do………What do you think? MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
