Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Tiramisu

*While raw eggs are traditionally used in tiramisu, to be safe, we recommend that you coddle the eggs to destroy any potential salmonella, or use store-bought eggs that are labeled as pasteurized.

  • Prep Time: 4 hours 30 mins
  • Total Time: 4 hours 30 mins
  • Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 6 egg yolks, coddled*
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 16 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups strong brewed coffee
  • 3 7.5 ounce packages Pepperidge Farm® Double Chocolate Milano® Cookies – 27 cookies for layering and the remaining for garnish


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine the egg yolks and sugar. Whisk on high speed until thick and creamy. Add the mascarpone cheese and 1 tablespoon of the brewed coffee and whisk again until fully combined. Set aside.
  2. Pour the remaining coffee into a small shallow bowl. One at a time, dip the Pepperidge Farm® Double Chocolate Milano® Cookies into the coffee for 5-10 seconds, allowing the cookie to absorb some of the coffee. Place the dipped cookies in the bottom of a small shallow baking dish or bowl filling the bottom of the dish in a single layer.
  3. Spoon 1/3 of the mascarpone mixture over the single layer of cookies. Repeat – dipping the cookies in coffee, then laying the cookies on top of the mascarpone. Spoon another 1/3 of the mascarpone over the cookies, then finish with a final layer of coffee-dipped cookies and a top layer of the final 1/3 mascarpone.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight). 5. When ready to serve, cut remaining Milano cookies into large pieces and sprinkle over the top. Serve immediately.

  1. Wonderful contest Jack & Martha! I always think of Pepperidge Cookies as for adults only, but I think that’s just me justifying not sharing the kids, or waiting until they go to bed to indulge (is that terrible or what). My mom bought me the Pepperidge Chocolate chip cookies the other day and they hit the spot. Although I wouldn’t advise eating the whole bag! Such a creative dessert.

  2. My favorite way to press pause, unwind, and enjoy the moment is to take a nice hot bubble bath with my favorite soft music.

    I LOVE YOU for this recipe! I mean seriously…. it my neck of the woods, it’s damned near impossible to find the traditionally crunchy lady fingers (‘savoiardi’) in my local grocery stores/supermarkets; all they carry are the soft, spongy ones. With these Milano cookies, my Tiramisu not only had a more pronounced flavor because of the chocolate between the cookies, but also had a better structure and overall texture! The only thing I did slightly different from your recipe was to spike it with dry Marsala wine and I used a really strong espresso (with the “crema”) instead of regular coffee. While I probably should really learn how to make savoiardi myself, this was a SIMPLE and GREAT idea… definitely one to keep! Thank you so much!
