This easy fig tiramisu in a cup recipe is a fruity twist on the traditional Italian dessert. It consists of layers of mascarpone cream, espresso-dipped ladyfingers, and figs. This no-bake dessert made in 15 minutes is perfect for an entertaining party.
To make the mascarpone filling, separate egg whites from yolks with an egg separator. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, until smooth. Then add one tablespoon of Marsala and whisk again.
In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites with a pinch of salt and gently add them to the mascarpone mixture using a rubber spatula.
Pour strong cold espresso on a deep plate and add the remaining one tablespoon of Marsala. Dip ladyfingers cut in halves quickly, one at a time, and place into the bottom of six glasses. Pipe or spoon half of the mascarpone cream, then place eight quarters of fresh figs. Cover with another layer of cookies dipped in coffee, then spread the remaining cream and even top of the dessert with a bent spatula.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. At the last moment, sprinkle with cocoa powder. Use a stencil if desired.
