Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts. This is an easy version and gets rave reviews! If you can't find lady fingers you can use pound cake or even angel food cake.

Admittedly, tiramisu is not normally my go-to dessert. This, however, has just about changed my thinking! The mix flavors is really good and makes for a delightful after-dinner treat. Make sure you try this one! We used an 8 oz. container of heavy cream and had more than enough whipped cream for dish.
