I made this for Thanksgiving one year-it's light and rich at the same time but still has those traditional Thanksgiving flavors. The original recipe called for rum to be used but I used Tuaca-a vanilla liquor- instead.
1 1/2 cwhipping cream
scant 3/4 csugar
8 ozmascarpone cheese
1-15 ozcan of pure pumpkin
3/4 tsppumpkin pie spices
2 pkgladyfingers-3 oz each
1/4 ctuaca (or rum)
2 ozcrushed amaretti cookies
How to Make Pumpkin Tiramisu
- Beat whipping cream and sugar until peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice; beat just until filling is smooth.
Line bottom of 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides with 1 package ladyfingers, overlapping and crowding to fit. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons rum. Spread half of filling over ladyfingers.
Repeat with second package ladyfingers, remaining 2 tablespoons rum, and remaining filling. Smooth. Wrap tightly in plastic, then foil. Chill overnight.
To unmold, run knife around inside edge of pan. Release pan sides; sprinkle with amaretti cookies. I've also made this in a trifle bowl and just served with a spoon. One less step!
