Dear Hostesses,

Even though this is a sponsored post, I have to honestly tell you that the instant I opened up my bottle of Heering  Coffee Liquor, I closed my eyes and felt like I was in coffee heaven.  The pure aroma of this sweet liquor made me want to swirl a drop of  heavy cream into this perfect blend of Caribbean rum with coffee and cocoa. Throw in a couple of ice cubes and I’m almost  relaxing on a beach in St Barths. Who cares if I didn’t make my hammentashen yet? My packed carry-on is at the front door!

Ok- so when I opened my eyes I realized that my Jet Blue flight was going to have to wait, and instead of Googling “exotic Caribbean vacations”, I Googled “pareve tiramisu”.

A perfect recipe for a meat Purim Seudah….

Pareve Tiramisu Trifle

courtesy of Gourmet Kosher Cooking

Cookie Layer:
2 packages Ladyfingers
4 heaping teaspoons instant espresso
Hot water to dissolve the espresso in about ¼ cup
½ cup Heering Coffee Liquor (only $24.99- Purchase HERE)

Mix together espresso, water and liqueur.
pareve tiramisu

Center Layers:
1 8-ounce pareve chocolate bar, in shavings
3 Tablespoons cinnamon

Cream Layer:
5 eggs, separated
5 tablespoons sugar
1 package tofutti cream cheese
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 small container pareve whipping cream, whipped
Extra whipping cream for the top

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Separately beat the yolks with both sugars until pale yellow. Add the tofutti cream cheese and the vanilla extract to combine. Fold in the egg whites. Fold in the whipped cream and chill until using.

To assemble:

Dip ladyfinger cookies in the coffee mixture (do this individually and quickly otherwise the cookies will be too mushy). Layer the bottom of the trifle bowl decoratively with the soaked cookies. Spoon 1/4 of the cream mixture over the ladyfingers. Sprinkle generously with chocolate then cinnamon. Repeat with more ladyfingers on top of the cinnamon layer, then cream, chocolate and cinnamon. Repeat 4 times. Top with the extra whipped cream and more chocolate and cinnamon. Chill until serving

*This can be made in individual dishes or a low dish. Keep in the refrigerator to cut out pieces.

Another not-to-be-missed fabulous liquor by the Heering family is their fruity Cherry liquor! 

Nestle a basket of fresh cherries in with this classy bottle and you’ve got one impressive Mishloach Manot!
