Tira Mi Su

Method

  • Dissolve the coffee in boiling water in a large bowl. Then soak the biscuits in the coffee for 5 secs each side. Remove, drain well and allow to cool, before cutting the biscuits in half lengthways.
  • At the same time, toss the strawberries in 3 tbsp caster sugar and set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine the mascarpone with the scrapings of the inside of the vanilla bean, 100 gm caster sugar, the Galliano, Kahlua and cream in a mixer until firm, being careful not to overwork. Then cover and refrigerate until the biscuits are cold.
  • When ready, place a medium-sized pastry cutter on a small plate. Gently press a biscuit around the inside of the mould and spoon the cheese mixture in the centre. Then make a small well in the middle and gently push in strawberries. Sprinkle with a little chocolate and top with more cheese mixture. Smooth out the top and remove the pastry cutter. 
  • Repeat the process with the remaining biscuits and cheese mixture.
  • To serve, sprinkle with a little more chocolate and icing sugar, and garnish with more strawberries and a mint sprig.
