- PASTRY DOUGH 2 pie crust
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg (room temperature)
- 1 egg yolk (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon butter (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 14 lady fingers
- 1/2-3/4 cup strong coffee (decaffeinated is fine)
- unsweetened cocoa for sprinkling
- TIRAMISU FILLING
- 2 cups mascarpone
- 2 cups whole cream
- *2 eggs (eggs can be eliminated)
- 3 tablespoons sugar
PIE DOUGH** (lightly grease and flour a 10x1.5 inches pie or cake pan.
In a large bowl, gently whisk together flour,sugar and baking powder, create a well in the middle and add slightly beaten egg and yolk and butter cut into pieces. Mix together, at this point turn mixture onto a slightly floured surface and work the mixture to form a soft dough (it will take about 10 minutes for everything to come together to form a dough, it does seem crumbly at first but don't lose patience). Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat oven to 350°.
Remove from fridge and on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a couple of times to soften it up again. Roll out to approximately 1/8" thickness. Place cut out pie crust in prepared pie plate, using a fork prick the pie dough, then cover the dough with parchment paper and weigh it down with dry beans. Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven, remove paper and beans, let cool.
Beat together sugar and eggs until frothy, then add the Mascarpone and cream, beat until thick. (if eliminating eggs beat sugar with Mascarpone and cream together).
PUTTING IT TOGETHER
Spread the baked pie dough with an even layer of Nutella, top with half the Mascarpone cream, dip the Lady Fingers (whole cookie), one cookie at a time in the coffee, then place on top of the Mascarpone Cream, top with remaining cream. Refrigerate at least 4-5 hours, overnight is even better. Before serving sprinkle with cocoa. Enjoy!
With the extra dough I made some cut out cookies and a few I made squares and filled them with Nutella. Bake for approximately 12 minutes.
**Or you could use a food processor and when the dough almost comes together remove to a lightly floured surface and knead until you have a soft dough.
