Tiramisu Pie

Tiramisu Pie

I have been craving a Tiramisu Dessert for weeks and finally decided to bake this Tiramisu Pie {which is most delicious and ever so addicting} again after a couple of months have passed since I baked the first one.

The kids were both home all week, and all of us agree that this is one of the best versions of a Tiramisu we have ever tasted. This Pie truly tastes like a little piece of foodie heaven and I should really start making it more often, seeing as the kids now also had a taste.

The filling is silky smooth and the extra layer of Coffee/Brandy soaked Ladyfingers, makes this Pie really special. Your guests would be well pleased with a slice - or two !

Because of the Cottage Cheese I use, it is also a very light dessert and is perfect to enjoy after a rich meal. Just a little something to end off a good dinner, and most definitely suitable during warm weather when you only want a light sweet treat.

As with all, if not most, Tiramisu desserts, this Tiramisu Pie only gets better the longer it stands. Only reason I know, I baked it once, served the Pie a couple of hours later, but the second time I baked it the night before and we only had the Pie for dessert the following evening - so, so much better !

Tiramisu Pie

6 - 8 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups Cookies, finely crumbled     {Tennis Biscuits or Graham Crackers}
2 TB Icing Sugar
1/2 cup Butter, melted

2 cups Smooth Cottage Cheese, plain
1/3 cup Sugar
1 t Vanilla Essence
2 Eggs
8 Ladyfinger Cookies
1/2 cup Strong Black Coffee
1 TB Brandy

1 1/2 cups Sweetened Whipped Cream
1/2 cup Chocolate, grated/shavings

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 22.5 cm (9 inch) oven proof pie dish with cooking oil.
2.) Combine the Cookie Crumbs, Icing Sugar and Butter - press onto the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie dish.
3.) Beat together the Cottage Cheese, Sugar and Vanilla Essence until combined - add the Eggs one-by-one, beating in between - keep beating until smooth.
4.) Arrange a layer of Ladyfinger Cookies on the bottom of the crust {break some to make it even}
5.) Mix the Coffee and Brandy - pour over the Ladyfingers - followed by the Cottage Cheese filling - bake 55 - 60 minutes or until the center of the filling has almost set.
6.) Remove from the oven - let cool completely, cover with cling wrap and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
7.) Just before serving, scoop over the Whipped Cream and sprinkle with grated Chocolate.

Serve and enjoy !
