I am a self proclaimed connoisseurI of tiramisu. It is hands down my favorite dessert. I made this for Valentines Day. Serving sizes are large just like in any fine Italian restaurant. I successfully halved the recipe using an 8x8 pan and got 9 servings. Be sure to use the Italian ladyfinger cookies recommended, they are hard, not soft like sponge cake. I found the Savoiardi cookies in the Italian section of the grocery store. The creamy sauce and coffee syrup TDF! Make all of the syrup, you wont have much waste You can leave the mini chips out if you don't want to bite into chips. Cook time is chilling which can be 3 hours but best if let to chill overnight. I chilled overnight.
