    Ingredients: 5 egg yolks
    16 ounces marscapone
    cheese -- (Bel-Gio-Oso
    brand is best.
    Some of the other brands
    don't set up as well)
    1/8 cup artificial sweetener
    -- or equivalent, sweeten to
    taste.
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1/8 cup espresso coffee --
    or extremely strong coffee
    (can be decaf)
    24 vanilla wafer cookies --
    (Keeblers brand has fewest
    carbs)
    2 teaspoons cocoa powder
    -- (optional - cinnamon or
    little peels of
    unsweetened chocolate
    make good garnishes as
    well)
    Whipping cream -- (also
    optional)

    How To Prepare: Brew the espresso or very
    strong coffee. Pour in a cup.
    Put in the
    freezer to cool. Mix together
    the eggs, sugar,
    mascarpone cheese and
    vanilla, until very
    smooth. Side aside. Line
    the bottom of a
    12"springform pan with one
    layer of vanilla wafers
    (about 24). When the coffe
    is cool, spoon the coffee
    onto the wafers, just
    enough
    to flavor them but not make
    them distingerate (a very
    fine line).
    Spoon the cheese mixture
    onto the wafers, smooth
    with the back of a
    metal spoon. Refrigerate for
    4 hours. When ready to
    serve, top the tiramisu
    with a thin layer of cocoa
    powder.
    Garnish with whipped
    cream and serve. Serves
    12.
    Also try mixing in a bit of the
    espresso into the cheese
    mixture
    NOTES : My friends had no
    idea it was sugar-free, this
    is a MUST try!!!
    Impress the bejeesus out
    of friends who see low carb
    diets as
    restrictive! Marscapone
    cheese isn't as hard to
    come by as one might think,
    I found
    it in the deli of my local
    supermarket.
