Limoncello Tiramisu

READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Recipe by Manami

Mickey at Mickey's in Hamden serves this Tiramisu & one with espresso. Both are very popular. Am posting this as a request. It has a chill time of at least 6 hours, I think overnight might even be better.

This recipe is delicious!! This has a very light lemony flavor. The lemoncello is not strong at all. This is a keeper!!!
