This is an easy no bake, no egg, tiramisu that is absolutely fabulous!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Tiramisu is found on the dessert menu of pretty much every Italian restaurant. Cool, creamy, and decadent, this sounds fancy, but you can make it at home. Ladyfingers are soaked in a coffee/rum mixture. You taste the rum but it's not overpowering (it can be adjusted if needed, too). The ladyfingers are layered in between a light and fluffy mascarpone whipped cream. Dark chocolate shaved on touch is the perfect final touch. A heavenly dessert.

    Buy the small thin ladyfingers and open one package. Place the ladyfingers along the sides and bottom of a 9-inch springform pan (a 9x13 rectangle pan works just as well with ladyfingers on the bottom only).
  • Brushing ladyfingers with coffee mixture.
    Brush the ladyfingers with the coffee mixture. The ones on the side should only have a small amount of coffee mixture brushed on.
  • One-third of the cream mixture spread on top of the ladyfingers.
    Now take your cream mixture and place 1/3 of the bowl over the ladyfingers and carefully smooth it around the first layer of the tiramisu.
  • Another layer of ladyfingers added.
    Add another layer of ladyfingers on top of the cream mixture. Brush it with rum.
  • Another layer of cream and ladyfingers added.
    Now add another layer of cream mixture. Then add another layer of ladyfingers.
  • Remaining cream on top with chocolate shavings added.
    Follow with the rest of the cream mixture. Sprinkle shaved chocolate on the top and refrigerate overnight.
