  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 cup espresso coffee

  2. Prepare espresso coffee or instant coffee, 1 cup or so, and let cool.
  3. Assemble the tiramisu in a medium rectangular dish or trifle. Put a layer of cookies on the base, take each ladyfinger, and wet it with coffee on both sides. Don’t submerge the cookie. Only dip 1 second on each side, or it will break.

Traditionally tiramisu is made with mascarpone cheese, but I found that using lucuma puree was not worth the expense as the prominent flavor is lucuma. And it is delicious.
