Ingredients

To make this delicious peach tiramisu, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Fresh peaches, cubed into 1/4 inch small pieces. If making this off peach season, use drained canned peaches.
  • Lady fingers.
  • Espresso, freshly brewed and chilled. Of course you can also use any type of coffee you enjoy drinking. 
  • Egg yolks. Since this is a no-bake dessert, consider using pasteurized eggs or cooking the yolks and sugar over a double boiler.
  • Sugar.
  • Mascarpone cheese. Cold or room temperature is okay, but please do not replace it with cream cheese.
  • Peach curd. I am using my homemade peach curd, but peach preserves is also an option.
  • Heave cream. Very cold for the filling and some for topping the dessert.

How to Make Peach Tiramisu

Make the Filling

  1. Mix the egg yolks and sugar in a large mixing bowl over a double boiler until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is pale yellow.
  2. Remove from the heat and mix in the mascarpone cheese.
  3. Whip the heavy cream to medium-stiff peaks in a separate bowl, then fold it into the mascarpone cream.
  4. Fold in the peach curd.

  2. Top the cream with the chopped peaches.
  3. Spread half of the cream over the cookies.
  4. Repeat this with the rest of the cookies, peaches and cream and place it in the refrigerator to set for at least six hours, or preferably overnight.

Tips

  • For an extra burst of flavor, add a teaspoon of almond extract to the mascarpone mixture and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
  • Don’t over-whip the mascarpone with the egg mixture; it can curdle easily.
  • If you prefer a stronger coffee flavor, dip the ladyfingers in a mixture of espresso and peach liqueur.

Yields and Storage

  • This peach tiramisu recipe yields approximately 8 servings, making it ideal for small gatherings or family desserts. You can use an eight-inch pan, springform pan, or 8 individual dessert cups.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • The tiramisu is best enjoyed within the first two days, as the ladyfingers can become overly soggy over time.

Instructions

Make the filling

Recipe Notes

  • Store the dessert in the refrigerator for up to three days.
  • Cooking the egg yolks and sugar over a double boiler is optional, but I like to take an extra step in no-bake recipes that call for raw eggs. Another option is to use pasteurized eggs.
  • Flavoring the coffee with peach schnapps or other liquor is an option, but remember it will contain alcohol.
  • Consider adding almond extract to the filling and top with sliced almonds.
  • This recipe yeilds one 8, or nine inch dish, or 8 personal desert cups.
