Classic Tiramisu
June 12, 2003

Just a reply to MCCREARY74's comment about the Ladyfingers being so hard. When I first made Tiramisu (a different recipe), I went to my local supermarket and bought the only type of Ladyfingers they offered. They were hard as rocks (like Stella D'oro breakfast cookies), and even had a picture of Tiramisu on the package (No, they weren't just stale). You need to buy the soft variety. I have not come across a Tiramisu recipe that distinguishes between the two kinds of Ladyfingers. My Ladyfingers did not absorb the liquids when following the directions to dip them for just a few seconds--and turned out unpleasantly chewy. Hope this info helps avert a first time flop for some Tiramisu lover.
