ALL ORGANIC INGREDIENTS
3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
½ cup coconut sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
8 oz almond cream cheese
1¼ cups hot espresso coffee
2-4 tbsp of liquor of choice – I usages Kahlua
1 Package lady fingers
Cacao and cinnamon for finishing
Beat yolks and coconut sugar on medium high for 12 minutes or until white and thick.
Add vanilla and cream cheese, beat until just combined. Transfer mixture to a bowl, set aside.
Clean mixing bowl.
Beat egg whites until stiff.
Fold ⅓ of the yolk mixture into the egg whites.
Then gradually fold the remaining yolk mixture in and mix until just combined.
Mix coffee and Kahlua together. Quickly dip lady fingers in and line the bottom of pan. They will get “soggy” fast, so I wouldn’t recommend dipping more than 2 at a time.
Spread over half the cream, then top with another layer of coffee dipped biscuits.
Spread with remaining cream.
Dust with cacao and cinnamon powder.
Cover, refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
I adapted this recipe from Nagi/RecipeTin Eats, which had already been adapted. I of course am always trying to eliminate dairy and gluten from most recipes. The outcome was a hit at the party, plates were licked clean so I assume it is a keeper recipe!
