Ingredients

For the Tiramisu Cookies:

For the Mascarpone Espresso Filling:

  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso or 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 2-3 cups powdered sugar
  • Unsweetened cocoa for dusting

Instructions

For the rum cookies:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • For the rum cookies: Using an electric mixer cream the butter, sugar, vanilla, and rum extract together until light and fluffy—3-5 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined.
  • Add the baking powder and salt, then slowly add the flour to the mixture until well combined. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
  • Scoop small 1- to 1 1/2-teaspoon portions of dough and roll into balls. Place a little extra sugar in a small bowl and roll each ball in sugar before placing on a baking sheet. Use the bottom of a glass to press the dough balls into flat disks 1/2-inch thick. Bake for 9-10 minutes, until just baked through.

For the Mascarpone Espresso Filling:

  • Wash the mixing bowl and dry well. Then place the mascarpone and butter in the bowl and beat to combine. Pour the vanilla extract into a small bowl. Add the instant espresso powder and mix to dissolve. Beat into the cheese mixture. Slowly add the 2 cups powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Add extra powdered sugar if needed.
  • Place the filling in a large zip bag and cut a tiny hole off the corner. Turn half of the cooled cookies over and pipe 1 teaspoon of filling onto the bottom cookies. Top each cookie sandwich and sprinkle with cocoa powder.
