What an excellent recipe - I don't like tiramisu, however, my SIL loves it, so for a special family dinner I decided to make this. My SIL likes to rate meals using a rating of fail, satisfactory and outstanding - he gave the entire meal an outstanding + due mostly to this recipe. I must say that I have never tasted a tiramisu I cared for, both due to texture and flavor, the flavor in this was amazing, the only part of it I didn't care for was the texture - I've got to find a way to put some crunch in there in the future. That being said I will make this again even if I'm not able to find that crunch factor :) Thank you Sassy Syrah for posting this.

I love the cream for this recipe. I did not add extra sugar and found the recipe perfect as-is. I bought another brand of lady fingers and the result was too soggy. I could have used a tip about how to make sure they weren't too wet. I am thinking next time I will let the lady fingers get a little stale. Otherwise I thought that this was a terrific recipe!

AMAZING. I had to substitute twinkies for the ladyfingers. They fell apart, no matter how quick I dipped them. Layering with dry is a good idea Stelliana, I will do that next time, because there WILL be a next time. I also used substituted Kaluha, because I already had it in the cupboard. Next time, I will only make one cup of expresso. Even though the twinkies absorb the liquid quick, it did not take much. Thank you Sassy! Outstanding recipe!

My DH is Italian so this was something I just had to try making. It was quick to make and so great tasting that my DH now wants me to make it all the time! Thanks!

Very easy to make. Thanks for sharing. It was delicious, and not too sweet.

Totally changed my mind about Tiramisu. Definitely add the chocolate shavings, they make the dish.

I enjoyed this very much, but using 2 C of coffee made it too soggy once it set and had a lot of liquid drain to the bottom once I cut into it. Next time I will really quickly dip the biscuits for a "drier" tiramisu.
