Easy Summer Tiramisu ~ a no egg tiramisu dessert made in individual glasses for effortless summer entertaining. This classic Italian dessert made with ladyfinger biscuits, Kahlua, and creamy mascarpone cheese is epic!


4 servings

Total time

0 minutes




  • about 12 dry dried ladyfinger cookies (savoiardi biscuits)
  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup strong coffee, cold
  • 4 tsp Kahlua (or other alcohol of your choice)
  • 1 ounces dark chocolate for grating


  1. You'll need 4 glasses for serving, I used classic lowball glasses.
  2. Whip the cream with the sugar until it forms soft peaks, then gently fold in the room temperature mascarpone until they are both combined. Don't beat, just fold gently.
  3. Mix the cold coffee and Kahlua together in a shallow bowl.
  4. Working one ladyfinger at a time, cut each biscuit into one inch pieces, and dip them into the coffee to saturate. Put the pieces at the bottom of one glass. Repeat with all the glasses.
  5. Top each layer of soaked biscuits with a spoonful of the mascarpone/cream mixture. Top with a second layer of dipped cookies. Top with more cream, then a last layer of soaked cookies and a final topping of cream. Finish off with a generous amount of shaved chocolate. Note: if you love chocolate, feel free to add chocolate shavings to each layer.
