Tiramisu Recipe

This scrumptious and easy Tiramisu recipe is one of the most widely recognized Italian desserts. In Italian the word for this sweet dessert actually means “pick me up”, likely referring to the caffeine-laden espresso used to make this delectable treat. I recommend you actually use real espresso in this recipe, as the authentic flavor of the dish only shines through when real Italian ingredients are used. Also, you may find it difficult to find Savoiardi (ladyfingers) that adequately soak up the coffee. I suggest looking for an Italian brand cookie, and if you can’t find it at the grocery store, an import store should carry these. Then get ready to make a “WOW”-ing dessert!
