    We just tried this tiramisu recipe and we actually prefer it to any other version. The combination of pudding and cream was light and fluffy and tasted light and delicious. We will definitely do this again and I will be trying other recipes using Cortes Instant Pudding.

    I try not to use boxed pudding mixes when I make desserts, but I had promised to make something to bring to a dinner party tonight, and it's so hot here that I didn't want to turn on a burner, let alone the oven. I brewed extra coffee, a version from a local roaster flavored with caramel and rum, in the morning so I'd have enough to sprinkle over the ladyfingers. Instead of dusting the surface with cocoa powder I grated a couple of ounces of 72% cacao chocolate over it. Told the dinner guests that they were guinea pigs, and if it was really bad they should just tell me, and we would feed the leftovers to the dog. Instead I received two requests for the recipe. Even my coffee-hating daughter loved it.

    You could probably find a better recipe with higher quality/homemade lady fingers and/or better filling, but for a quick 20 minute recipe that is very satisfying... this one is a great solution.

    I made this for Christmas and it was a huge hit. I couldn't find ladyfingers so I used a family sized pound cake cubed instead and layered it that way. I also used a trifle dish and the presentation was pretty.

    This was so delicious and easier to make than the traditional recipe. It's light and not overly sweet. My family and I loved every single bite.

    Totally excellent!!! I also used non-fat whipped cream, non-fat milk in the pudding, decaf coffee crystals, and I had to use the chocolate on hand, which was shaved chocolate from Williams-Sonoma. I can't believe how easy it is to make - and how delicious it is - company LOVED it!
