Yum, Yum and Yum This was wonderful I make tiramisu at least 4 times a year and I love it. This is a different take on it but you have the yummy taste without all the guilt. I used a little more liquor than suggested, but hey why not have a little sin since the calories are lower. I also added raspberries as I have a bush in my back garden and wanted to use them up before they rotted, I chopped them added them to both layers. A definite keeper even my husband said I will be gaining pounds tomorrow with that one and when I told him it was low fat he couldn't believe it. We will be finishing the leftovers up tomorrow without so much guilt, as I know it is not completely sin free but as close as you can get for a dessert. Thanks for posting!!
