more Cognac and Cream

Dessert!  I made one substitution here. The recipe called for soft sponge cake style lady fingers. I don’t really like sponge cake and besides I already had some crunchy biscuit style ones. I just made extra of the coffee/tea/cognac mixture for them to soak up.

Tiramisu is really a pretty easy dessert to make. This recipe does require a number of steps including making sabayon but there are easier recipes out there….including some which use Twinkies, instant pudding and/or Kahlua.

The translation of the name Italian tiramisù (tirami sù) means “pick-me-up” (metaphorically, “make me happy”) – Wikipedia

It was good. I think it could have been better if my pineapple had been riper and tastier and also I didn’t get it as caramelized as I would like. I did grate some chocolate over it for an attractive garnish but it is really my type of recipe i.e. fruit and dairy! oh and caffeine! ya-ya!
