The real secret to a good Tiramisu is to use Italian cheese Mascarpone and let it rest in a fridge over night before you serve it. I make mine in individual glasses for a nice presentation. This is one of my favorite dessert. Recipe is easy so anyone can make and enjoy this popular treat. It freeze well.
