    I'm a bit of a tiramisu snob, hard to find one i enjoy....this was beyond my expectations! Has the flavor i love & is actually lighter. Loved it. Am making it for Easter - a double batch though!

    Not my favorite. Runny, not sweet enough, and the texture of the ricotta was not as pleasing as the quick recipes that use pudding mixes. There are much better quick tiramisu recipes on this site in my opinion.

    This was a real hit! Made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it! I used the entire coffee mix (1/2 cup) for the 1st ladyfingers layer, so it would soak through...I made a second batch of coffe mix for the second layer of ladyfingers. I used Mascarpone Cheese for Tiramisu instead of Ricotta cheese and added 3Tbsp of Kahlua Liqueur. I'm making it again for Easter...By popular demand!
