Tiramisu Cookies

Dairy or Pareve | Yield about 3½ dozen

Traditional tiramisu is a coffee-flavored dessert, noted for its ladyfingers soaked in espresso. I reinterpreted this fabulous dessert into cakey cookies, packed with coffee flavor and rolled in coffee-soaked ladyfinger crumbs.

Ingredients:
CRUMBS
1 cup coarse ladyfinger crumbs
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon brewed coffee (or ½ teaspoon instant coffee granules dissolved in 1 Tablespoon hot water)
COOKIE DOUGH
¾ cup oil
4 ounces cream cheese or soy cream cheese
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
¼ cup espresso or strong coffee (see Note)
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups flour

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Prepare the crumbs: Combine ladyfinger crumbs, brown sugar, and coffee in a small bowl. Stir until combined. Mixture should have the texture of damp sand. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the cookie dough: In the bowl of an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat together oil, cream cheese, and sugars until smooth.
  4. Add espresso, egg, baking soda, salt, and vanilla. Beat until smooth and creamy.
  5. Reduce mixer speed to low; add flour, one cup at a time, beating after each addition, until combined.
  6. Use a medium cookie scoop (or a heaping tablespoon) to portion out dough. Roll into balls; then roll in prepared ladyfinger crumbs until fully coated. Place onto prepared baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 10-11 minutes, until cookies are set.

Note: You can use 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules dissolved in ¼ cup hot water instead of espresso.

Plan Ahead: These cookies freeze well in an airtight container or bag. They’re on the soft side, so handle with care when packing them. Defrost fully before serving.

Giveaway is over! Congratulations to the winner, R Retchinsky!

Free Download to Enhance Your Tishah B’av

With Tishah B’Av approaching, we want to help our readers prepare to have a meaningful fast. This week we are sharing two free downloads that will make your Tishah B’Av more meaningful.

Kinnos for the Six Million Kedoshim

The destruction of the Six Million is our own generation’s stark connection to the eternal Tishah B’Av. Two great and inspiring spiritual leaders of our time, The Bobover Rebbe and Rav Shimon Schwab composed Kinnos lamenting and memorializing the unspeakable tragedy. Adopted by many congregations worldwide, these painful laments are read on Tishah B’Av.

A Portion of the Talmud Related to the Destruction of the Temple

On Tishah B ’Av, it is customary to study the interpersonal conflicts which led to the ruin of the Second Temple. One well-known source comes from the Schottenstein Edition Talmud Bavli Tractate Gittin, pages 55b-56a.

May we merit to see the speedy coming of Mashiach, and the transformation of Tishah B’Av from a day or mourning to a day of celebration.
