6 egg yolks pasteurized, room temperature
⅔ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¼ cup heavy cream

1 package ladyfinger cookies like Savoiardi 7 ounces (about 28 ladyfingers total)
How to make Tiramisu
Step 1: Place the egg yolks and 3/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Mix well using an electric mixer. Pour in the milk and mix again until smooth and light yellow colour.
Step 2: In a saucepan, pour the mixture and cook on medium heat, stirring often, until it boils. Gently boil the mixture for about a minute or two, then take the pan off the heat. Let the mixture cool for a little, then tightly cover and store in the fridge for about an hour.
Step 3: Beat the cream with vanilla and a tbsp sugar in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Make sure not to over mix the mixture.
Step 4: Take the yolk mixture from the fridge, then stir in the mascarpone until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream.
Step 5: Combine the coffee and rum in a small bowl. Into the mixture, dip the ladyfingers just enough to get each ladyfinger wet.
Step 6: In the bottom of a 9 x 9-inch baking dish, arrange half of the ladyfingers. Over the ladyfingers, spoon half of the mascarpone cream filling. Duplicate the layers.
Step 7: Tent the dish and keep it in the fridge for at least 24 hours up to 48 hours to ensure the flavours mix.
Step 8: Before serving, sprinkle the Tiramisu with cocoa powder. Enjoy!
