Tiramisu Cookies

Reproduced from Something Sweet by Miriam Pascal, with permission from the copyright holders, ArtScroll/Mesorah Publications

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.

Click here to download a printable copy of the recipe for Tiramisu Cookies

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 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups flour


  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!

Upwards: Learning Appreciation

If you’re looking for reading material for Pesach, look no further than Upwards,  by Shami Reinman – the personal account of a woman’s battle with Parkinson’s that will give you a whole new level of appreciate for everything you have in life.

You would think that reading the personal account of a woman in her 50’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease would be down, depressing, sad. You might be right in most cases, but not so with Upwards.

Upwards is the first-person account of Shami Reinman, a vibrant and energetic woman in her 50’s – a bubby, teacher, wife and mother. She’s fun, funny and full of life – just the kind of person everyone wants as a friend. Then the unthinkable happens, and Mrs. Reinman’s world is turned upside down.  As the author takes us through her journey from Diagnosis, to acceptance, to struggling with her own body – the overwhelming feeling is appreciation.

Yes. Appreciation.

When did I last appreciate my ability to wake up in the morning and get dressed – by myself? When was the last time that I stopped and thought about the gift of being able to speak loudly and clearly, and be understood by those around me? How often to I think about the blessing of being able to drive a car, climb a flight of stairs? Did I ever feel appreciation for my ability to chew, swallow and eat? Who really takes the time to appreciate that their body is not their own worst enemy?

Reading about Shami Reinman and her struggles, reading about how she faces her challenges with optimism, it carries through to the reader. In her words:

“I accept whatever Hashem sends me, and I am grateful for every day that I have. I’ll take each day as it comes.”

-Shami Reinman, Upwards (page 276)

ArtScroll’s “French Revolution” continues! The Edmond J. Safra French Edition Talmud

The Schottenstein Edition Talmud Bavli sparked an ongoing revolution in the Jewish world, opening the Talmud’s vast wisdom to hundreds of thousands. The Schottenstein Edition Hebrew Talmud continued bringing ArtScroll’s innovative features to tens of thousands more.

And then, about a decade ago, it was the turn for French speakers to rejoice, as the first volume of the Edmond J. Safra French Edition Talmud was published. In France, Switzerland, Belgium, Israel, and Canada, French speakers could now enjoy the many features of the Schottenstein Edition, beautifully adapted into French by a team of scholars, translators, and editors.

Just released is the 19th volume of the series, Maseches Chagigah, dedicated by Mrs. Safra in memory of her son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. Maseches Sukkah, volume 2, will be released soon after Pesach, and more volumes are in the works.

Can you “parlez-vous francais?” Then you, too, can discover the wisdom of the Talmud.
