Tiramisu is one of a handful of desserts that are magical to me. Even though I make a lot -and I do mean a lot- of desserts, I’m really not a lover of sweets and I'm not terribly tempted often. If, however, you stick a bowl or plate of tiramisu in front of me I'm going to dive in head first.
There is just something about the cookies soaked in coffee and rum, the creamy, sweet, ever-so-slightly tangy mascarpone filling, and the grated chocolate covering the whole lot that makes my head a little swimmy with anticipation.
I wanted to have a little fun with the classic tiramisu flavors and took all that is wonderful about it and put it into a bar cookie. And, whoa baby, what a cookie.
A mild but sturdy butter cookie base is brushed with super strong coffee or espresso and rum. A little of the coffee and rum makes its way into a whipped mascarpone and cream cheese topping that is then covered with a shower of grated bittersweet chocolate.
Can you think of a better accompaniment to an afternoon cup of coffee or tea than a square of the most sophisticated bar cookie you'll ever taste?
