My bf and I have made this probably 10 times after finding the recipe on a french vanilla cool whip container unfortunately we cant find french vanilla cool whip anymore even in the fall/winter so we use regular and french vanilla pudding and it tastes the same. BUT we use more coffee I drizzle it on the cookies til theyre all wet and softening every time we make this we do it a little different and its always tasted amazing just make sure to keep it cold for atleast 4-5 hours or it'll be runny but its AMAZING Im not a fan of coffee but I can definately taste it in there and this dessert is our favorite In a family of 4 plus a toddler who wont eat anything it only lasts a day. Lol. Definately cant want to take it to a family get together for them to try it! Read More

Great idea subbing nilla wafers for lady fingers. There was not enough liquid called for in this recipe. I had to punch holes in my pie and dump more coffee over it because even after 12 hours the wafers were still hard. I would say double the amount. Also double the cream cheese- we couldn't even taste it. People at work also said it needed more coffee flavor- even though I added some extra coffee liquor. Is there such a thing as coffee flavored pudding because that might help. This is a great idea in theory but needs to be kicked up a few notches. Read More

I made two pies because I had to modify this recipe. I used 1pkg (4serving size) of chocolate flavor pudding. Made it the same as for the vanilla and also made the vanilla. I made the bottom layer chocolate and the top vanilla. Did everything else the same. Wonderful!!! Read More

This is good but you need way more coffee than the recipe calls for. I soaked the wafers in coffee and I still didn't really taste the coffee. I think next time I make it I will add some coffee to the cream cheese mixture. I also used Lite Cool Whip and it was still good. Read More

I doubled the amount of coffee but still didn't have a coffee taste like Tiramisu usually does. I think the Nilla wafers overpowered the coffee flavor. My husband doesn't usually like Tiramisu but he liked this. Read More
