Try Our Easy and Delicious Tiramisu Recipe

Tiramisu is a decadent creamy dessert originating from Italy. In Italian, its name literally means, “pick me up.” That describes this tiramisu recipe perfectly, referring to its high-energy ingredients, strong coffee, and sugar. It has become a favorite in European and American restaurants. Since ladyfingers can be very difficult to find in the typical American grocery store, you can replace them with pound cake, biscotti, sponge cake, vanilla cookies, or angel food cake. To cut down on calories, you can also trade the mascarpone cheese for skim milk ricotta. Enjoy!
