Cooking with beer

So I'm not sure where you all fall on the beer lovers scale but FI and I are huge beer snobs and love trying new beer-infused dishes...thought I'd share this recipe for tiramisu made with a hazelnut brown ale...it actually was really yummy.  I made it last night as a midnight snack for our friends down at NJBeerCo.



Beeramisu





1 pound mascarpone cheese (I used Roma Cello's Rich & Creamy)
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 eggs beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup heavy cream, whipped
48 ladyfinger cookies (used 36 for an 8x8 dish)
6 ounces (3/4 cup) Porter beer
1/2 cup brewed coffee, the stronger the better
1/2 cup cocoa


In a large bowl mix together the mascarpone, sugar, beaten eggs and vanilla. Fold in the whipped cream. Set this mixture aside.

In a shallow dish stir together the Porter beer and the brewed coffee, Dip the ladyfingers cookies into the coffee mixture. Don't let the ladyfingers get soggy. Arrange them in a single layer in a glass casserole dish. Spread 1/2-inch layer of mascarpone mixture on top of the ladyfingers. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cocoa. Repeat this for the second layer. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving.

Serves 12

It didn't taste like the beer but the bitterness from the ale mixed with the sweetness of the mascarpone was delish....I brought it down to our local brewery for the guys to try out and they were all in heaven.
