Our tips for making the best tiramisu cookies

  • Underbake the cookies slightly: Cookies continue to cook as they cool, so if you take your cookies out of the oven when they’re fully cooked they’ll cool to slightly overbaked. Take them out when the edges are set but the centers are still a little underbaked and you’ll have soft, perfectly cooked cookies!
  • Don’t over mix the frosting: Mascarpone can be a little finicky so don’t over mix the frosting once you’ve added it into the cream and powdered sugar mixture. If you mix for too long the frosting will start to split which is so sad.
  • Don’t top with the cocoa powder until ready to serve: Just like regular tiramisu, if you dust these cookies with cocoa powder too soon it will absorb into the mascarpone and get wet. You can make and frost the cookies in advance but don’t top them with the cocoa powder until you’re ready to serve them!

Ingredients

for the cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

for the mascarpone frosting

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • cocoa powder, for dusting

Instructions

    1. First, make the cookies. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
    3. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.
    4. Add the flour, espresso powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the bowl and beat on low speed until just combined and no streaks of flour remain.
    5. Use a 1.5 ounce cookie scoop to scoop out equal amounts of dough and place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing the dough 2 inches apart.
    6. Bake until the cookies have puffed up and are set and firm around the edges but still slightly gooey in the middle, 13 to 14 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
    7. Once the cookies have cooled, make the frosting. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the heavy cream and powdered sugar together until combined, about 20 seconds. Add the mascarpone, vanilla extract and salt and beat only until combined, about 30 seconds. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a round tip and pipe spirals of frosting onto each cooled cookie.
    8. When ready to serve, dust with cocoa powder and devour! Store the cookies covered in the fridge for up to 5 days!

  1. Oh wow, I’m very excited to make these cookies later so that’s good to know! How do you think the measurement is off; should I put more or less espresso powder in? Ty 🙂

  2. She has done it again ladies and gentlemen. These cookies are sooooo good. My only comment is I think the measurement is off in M for the espresso powder! Would highly recommend though!






  3. I just made these cookies and they were fantastic! I did not have espresso powder so I used instant espresso. For everything else, I followed the recipe exactly. Delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe🥰
