Reviews for Make-Ahead Tiramisu
"This was really good . Next time I make it I will add some of the coffee liqueur to the filling also. If you have a Krogers or a Ralph's the ladyfingers are usually over by the fresh fruits"
"Using what I had on hand, I made this with a lemon cake mix in place of ladyfingers. Very good. May thin cream cheese with a bit of yoghurt next time."
"Delicious and easy!"
"I really wanted to like this recipe as I love Tiramisu - but this tasted way too much like sour cream and strong coffee. Maybe with half the sour cream it might have been better - but I'm sorry to say we did not enjoy this particular version."
"This is pretty darn close to the tiramisu I've been making for years. It's a great recipe. I wonder, could vanilla wafer cookies be substituted for ladyfingers if you were in a pinch? I make ladyfingers at home (no stores in my area carry these cookies) when I have the time. I would make tiramisu more often if I didn't have to bake the ladyfingers first."
