This is my favorite dessert and will be the favorite of anyone who tries it, I am sure! You may substitute cubed pound cake for the ladyfingers.

  • Quickly dip ladyfingers, one at a time, in cooled coffee and arrange them in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Use 15 cookies to cover the bottom of the dish. Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the cookie crust and sprinkle the chocolate on top. Repeat the soaked cookie and cheese layers.

  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight before serving.

I really loved the flavor of this but it came out very runny. I refrigerated it overnight but it was still runny. Any tips on how to get it a little thicker? Read More

I made this for a 4th of July party and it was a smash!! Everyone who tasted it couldn't believe that I could make it. I like that you don't have to bake anything. I have tried all kinds of tiramisu cake at fine resturants and even my familys own and this is wonderful. I don't like the pound cake just layers of ladyfingers are the best. Read More

Fabulous!!! It wasn't too hard to make either. The longer you let it sit the less it will fall apart when you serve it. I definitely recommend letting it sit overnight otherwise it falls apart when you serve it (which isn't so bad - it still tastes great!) This is a wonderful recipe. Read More

This was a HUGE hit at a dinner party I had last weekend. Everyone agreed it was wonderful but needed a stronger hint of something: the consensus was to replace 1/2 of the coffee with Kahlua. Read More

I love this recipe everytime that I make everyone raves about it. I use pound cake instead of lady fingers and add a little amaretto to mascropone cheese mixture. Read More

This was a really good recipe. I read the reviews and added Kahlua for half the coffee as suggested and it really made the dish. I also agree with using cocoa instead of the ground chocolate - that was the most time consuming part of the recipe. Other than that the recipe was super easy and REALLY good. Read More
