These Tiramisu Tartlets which are Korzinki in Russian (translating baskets) were inspired by our popular Korzinki with Cream. If you haven’t tried them, you are missing out! One of my absolute favorite recipes on our entire blog – yes, that good.

How to prepare cookie dough tartlets-

The ingredients for this recipe may surprise you. Yes, mayo is added and no you cannot taste it at all. You’d never know it was an ingredient if I didn’t tell you. 🙂 It’s a key ingredient as it makes the butter tartlets soft and so delicate.

  • In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the dough, mix until well incorporated.
  • The cookie dough will be soft but not stick to your hands. Add additional flour one tablespoon at a time if needed. 
  • Wipe down the mini tartlet molds with a dry kitchen rag or paper towel and add the dough. Push dough down to shape baskets. The thickness of the dough should be consistent all the way around for even cooking (or else some areas will burn while others may be undercooked).
  • Bake until golden.
  • Allow baskets to cool a bit and flip them over. The baskets should fall out easily.

    My boyfriend is Italian so I’m super excited to try this! Is there anyway to do this without mayonnaise?

    Thank you!

      Mayo is vital in the recipe but you’d never know it’s in there. You can try the Tiramisu Roulade instead if you’d like?.

    What could I use instead of mascarpone cheese?

    • Valentina's Corner 12/04/2019, 8:08 am Link Reply

      You can just use cream cheese instead, if you’d like. The mascarpone does give flavor so maybe add a dash of vanilla instead. I hope you love these, they are so fun to make.

    Can these be made in the mini muffin tins?

    • Valentina's Corner 11/19/2019, 10:30 am Link Reply

      I don’t think they will work in those. You want to be able to shape a basket so you can fill it with cream.

    You didn’t tell us how you made the chocolate spiral for the garnish.

    • Valentina's Corner 09/07/2019, 9:22 pm Link Reply

      Oh thanks for catching that, Jayne. We’ll be sure to update that.

  • Olga 02/17/2019, 2:58 am Link Reply

    Is there any way to make these or something similar without the tartlet molds?

    • Valentina's Corner 02/17/2019, 11:31 pm Link Reply

      Unfortunately, you need something to help shape the dough and keep it in place. Maybe a local Kitchen store would have something similar, I am not sure. Sorry, that wasn’t helpful.

      Hi, Jessica! It says the size is 7.87 x 6.3 x 1.18 in. Those are really large. I’ve not made these tartlets using such a large size so cannot be for sure how they will turn out. The small molds I have linked work best. 🙂 Hope that helps. Have a most blessed Christmas.

    Yummy! Definitely going to make these for Christmas!

    • Valentina's Corner 12/09/2018, 11:45 pm Link Reply

      You are in for a treat, Olya! I hope you love the tartlets as much as we do! 🙂 Merry Christmas to you as well.
