What is for the Germans gingerbread and speculoos, that are for the Dutch Pepernoten. No sooner is September than you are already being bombarded with them.
In the 8 years I live here, I could never quite understand the obsession of the Dutch people with the peppercorn-like, dry and hard biscuits. This Christmas, however, I have been able to develop a whole new enthusiasm for Pepernoten. Because I have discovered a Pepernoten tiramisu recipe that I do not want to withhold from you.
Ingredients for the Pepernoten Tiramisu
For 6 people in small glasses
- 200g mascarpone
- 200 g of cottage cheese
- 200 ml vanilla vat or custard
- 50 ml coffee liqueur
- 200 ml of strong coffee
- 500 g Pepernoten
- 40 g of sugar
That’s how it’s done
Put on strong coffee first and put it in a bowl.
Then add the coffee liqueur to the coffee.
The quark, vla and the mascarpone are then stirred well until a smooth cream is formed. Who wants, can taste the cream with a dash of coffee liqueur.
Then the pepernoten are soaked in the coffee and put in the glass. Then comes a layer of cream and then a layer of Pepernoten and a last layer of cream on top.
You can still decorate with some cocoa and chocolate flakes. Then you put everything in the fridge for a few hours. Finished.
The Tiramisu is a bit powerful, by the way. Small portions are therefore ideal.
