First put a layer of the whipped marscapone mixture into the bottom of your trifle bowl.
Then add a layer of lady fingers… each lady finger gets dipped into the coffee mixture before going onto the tiramisu.
Now, here’s the thing. You don’t want soggy tiramisu. If your tiramisu squishes and oozes coffee when you cut it, you dipped the cookies too much, for too long.
I recommend kissing each side of the cookie to the surface of the coffee – that way the lady fingers soak up just enough coffee flavor, without making the tiramisu soggy. So, go ahead, let your cookies kiss the coffee.
