Spirits & Spice Coffee Cake

Easy, no baking dessert.  Mascarpone custard layered with coffee, liqueur and whipped cream.  One serving isn’t enough!

6 Egg yolks

¾ cup White sugar

⅔ cup Milk

1 ¼ cups Heavy cream

½ tsp Vanilla extract

1 lb Mascarpone cheese

3 Tbsp Strong brewed coffee, room temperature

3 Tbsp Spirits & Spice S'Mores Liqueur or Spirits & Spice Coffee Cake Cream Liqueur

2 x 3 oz Packages of Lady Finger cookies

1 Tbsp Unsweetened cocoa powder

Serves 6

In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil gently for 1 minute, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.

In a medium bowl, whip cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form.

Use a whisk to whip mascarpone into yolk mixture until smooth.

In a small bowl, combine coffee and Spirits & Spice S'Mores Liqueur. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise and drizzle with coffee mixture.

Arrange half of soaked ladyfingers in bottom of a 7x11 inch dish. Spread half of mascarpone mixture over ladyfingers, then half of whipped cream over that. Repeat layers and sprinkle with cocoa. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, until set.
