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.
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)
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 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups flour
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
- 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.
- Prepare the cookie dough: In the bowl of an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat together oil, cream cheese, and sugars until smooth.
- Add espresso, egg, baking soda, salt, and vanilla. Beat until smooth and creamy.
- Reduce mixer speed to low; add flour, one cup at a time, beating after each addition, until combined.
- 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.
- 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.
