Tiramisu for Two

INGREDIENTS

Makes 2 servings

2 tablespoons coffee flavored liqueur
1 tablespoon brewed coffee
8 Walkers Pure Butter Vanilla Shortbread
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
1 container (8 oz.) mascarpone cheese
1 square (1 oz) semi sweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl, stir together coffee liqueur and coffee.  Brush both sides of  6 of the shortbread cookies with coffee mixture.  Cut each cookie in half.

In a medium bowl, beat heavy cream and 2 tablespoons sugar until stiff peaks form.

In separate medium bowl, beat mascarpone cheese and 1/4-cup sugar.  Fold in whipped cream.

In each of two wine goblets, place 3 cookie halves.  Spoon 1/4 of cheese mixture over cookies. Repeat layers.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours so that cookies soften slightly.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, microwave chocolate on high for 40 seconds, then stir until melted.  Using a small spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate over remaining 2 cookies.

Just before serving, use a fine sieve to lightly sprinkle each dessert with cocoa.  Garnish each dessert with a chocolate-drizzled cookie.
