Tiramisu

From America's Test Kitchen Season 9: Bringing Home Italian Favorites

Why this recipe works:

For the perfect tiramisu recipe, we determined just the right proportions of the ingredients and perfected our dipping technique, so that the ladyfingers would be properly moistened but not saturated with a mixture of coffee and dark rum.

Brandy and even whiskey can stand in for the dark rum. The test kitchen prefers a tiramisù with a pronounced rum flavor; for a less potent rum flavor, halve the amount of rum added to the coffee mixture in step 1. Do not allow the mascarpone to warm to room temperature before using it; it has a tendency to break if allowed to do so. Be certain to use hard, not soft ladyfingers.
