As a mouthwatering finale, Nancy Granaman of Burlington, Iowa whips up her tiramisu and serves it in pretty parfait glasses. “These are a long-time favorite dessert,” she comments. “I think they look so pretty with a drizzle of chocolate, sprinkle of mini chips or cocoa on top."—Nancy Granaman, Burlington, Iowa

"Too easy! I love it! I did not find lady fingers, so I substituted pound cake. I also listened to previous reviewers, and used brewed coffee instead of instant. I used 2 cups of strong coffee! :) Thank you for sharing!"

"This is outstanding, but I did make a few modifications: I used homemade whipped cream, fresh brewed coffee instead of from instant, and Angel food cake instead of ladyfingers (because I couldn't find them at my local grocery stores). I actually prefer this to real tiramisu - plus no raw eggs!"

"This was delicious! I actually soaked the ladyfingers in Kahlua instead of coffee and it turned out great. I also layered into an 8x8 inch dish instead of the parfait glasses. Very easy - would be great for a potluck too!"

"We loved this recipe, my 8 year old thought it was the best. I think it could have had a little more coffee flavoring, after sitting over night the coffee flavor wasn't as strong. Next time I think I'll try some coffee liquer."
