Raspberry Tiramisu

Ok, here is the dessert recipe I'm planning to make for Valentine's Day. This recipe was given to me in 2002 and I've made it with the pumpkin, out of this world, then one year I made it substituting the pumpkin with peanut butter for DH's birthday, really yummy, if you love peanut butter.

For Valentine's Day, I'll be using canned raspberries, drained, for the pumpkin, and Raspberry Liquour instead of the Fra Angelico, since we do not have the FA, but got the raspberry liquour for Christmas. I'll probably leave out the spices also.

The little lady fingers I find at the bakery dept in our grocery store. They don't always have them out on the shelf. They are soft and nice.

I will try to take pictures as I make this also.


1 pkg. Italian Ladyfingers (soft, not hard cookies)
1/8 c. Frangelico liqueur (or orange juice)
8 oz. Mascarpone (or cream cheese)
1/2 c. canned pumpkin puree
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground mace
1 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. orange cxtract
2 1/2 c. heavy cream, whipped and chilled, divided

Arrange ladyfingers on the bottom of a 9-inch square pan. Pour the Frangelico liqueur over the soft sweet ladyfingers. (You may substitute the same volume of orange juice for a non-alcoholic preparation.) ~~ In a mixing bowl, blend together the mascarpone with the pumpkin puree. Add the cinnamon, ginger, mace, confectioner's sugar and orange extract.~~ Fold in 1 1/2 cups of the whipped cream. Pour the mixture over lady fingers. ~~ Gently spread remaining whipped cream on top of pumpkin mixture. Sprinkle the top with a dash or two of additional cinnamon, if desired. ~~ Cover and refrigerate at least two hours before serving, or overnight.~~ Slice to serve.

the less flavor;
the less you eat,
the more flavor.

Tiramisu is my favorite dessert, but what an original idea to make it with pumpkin puree! You are really expanding my horizons, I will have to try it.
