Butter biscuit tiramisu pots

    2 hours 15 min

    I'm not a big fan of sponge fingers, so I've replaced them with petit beurre butter biscuits. This tiramisu is delicious, especially with the little aftertaste of vanilla and coffee. My husband does not usually like tiramisu, but when I make this one he's begging for more!

    1. Whisk egg whites in a bowl until stiff peaks are formed and set aside.
    2. In another mixing bowl beat egg yolks with sugar until frothy, then add mascarpone, crème fraîche and vanilla. When mixture is smooth, gently fold in the egg whites.
    3. One at a time, briefly dip biscuits in coffee to soften and layer in the bottom of serving glasses. Cover with a layer of mascarpone cream and grate a bit of chocolate on top. Repeat layers (biscuits, cream, chocolate) until dishes are filled, finishing with grated chocolate on top.
    4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and serve chilled.
