You might have noticed I got a new heading and I am very excited about it! Yet I am going to change it due to the fact that the fonts and colors don't really match. But, hey, baby steps.
I also got a favicon up on my blog (look up next to my url... see the little picture!). Yup it's exciting for me, especially since I worked on it for two hours last night.
Also, I'm very happy with how my food photography is coming along, yes I'm still in the beginning stages, but I'm getting better. (Go ahead, take a look at my first post!)
Well, this week I was looking to try something new, and I recently tried tiramisu from the local grocery store's bakery last weekend. So, of course I wanted to make it. The recipe I found was a simple, yet extremely good cross between a tiramisu and a triffle. ('cause there's no cake) So, it's not a very authentic tirmasu, but heck: it's creative.

Tiramisu Trifles

Adapted from: My Baking Addiction
Yields: 5 to 7 servings

For the Tiramisu:

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Ricotta Cheese, any style
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon Kahlua, or vanilla as a substitute
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso granules

1. Combine whipping cream and sugar in food processor bowl fitted with metal blade.

2. Process until cream is stiff (time varies by machine, but about 1 min). Transfer whipped cream to a medium bowl and set aside. (There is really no need to clean the food processor.)

3. Combine cheese, cocoa powder, Kahlua and instant espresso granules in food processor bowl. Process until blended. Add cheese mixture to bowl with whipped cream; fold in with rubber spatula until no white streaks remain.

For Layers:

1 1/4 cup heavy cream, whipped with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup chocolate cookie crumbs (such as Oreos™without the inside)

For Garnish:

fresh raspberries
mini chocolate chips

Assembly:

Place the tiramisu in one pastry bag and the whipped cream in another (Use small to medium sized plain tips). Spoon the crushed cookie into each small glass until it forms a small layer on the bottom. Then pipe a layer of tiramisu, then a layer of whipped cream. Repeat this (cookies- tramisu- whipped cream) once more, finishing with the whipped cream in a nice spiral on top. (If you have to do it 3 times that's fine too, get creative!)

Top with raspberry's and mini chocolate chips. And put in the fridge until you serve.
Can be made 1 day ahead.
