  1. Brew Coffee:
  • Prepare a cup of strong brewed coffee and let it cool to room temperature. Stir in the coffee liqueur.
  1. Prepare Tiramisu Filling:
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with granulated sugar until the mixture becomes pale and thick. Add mascarpone cheese and continue to beat until smooth.

  1. Assemble Tiramisu:
  • Dip each ladyfinger into the coffee mixture for a few seconds, ensuring they are moistened but not soaked.
  • Arrange a layer of dipped ladyfingers at the bottom of a serving dish or individual glasses.
  • Spread a portion of the tiramisu filling over the ladyfingers.
  • Sprinkle a layer of crushed stroopwafels over the tiramisu filling.
  • Repeat the layers until you reach the top of the dish, finishing with a layer of the tiramisu filling.
  1. Chill:
  • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and the dessert to set.
  1. Garnish and Serve:
  • Before serving, dust the top with cocoa powder and sprinkle crushed stroopwafels for a decorative touch.
