Nice tiramisu recipe that omits the traditional addition of raw egg yolks in the custard. The only negative thing about the recipe is the 1 cup of water added to the coffee

A great spin on tiramisu. I love pumpkin and this was light and airy and delicious! I cut it in half and put it in an 8 x 8 pan. It was perfect.

This recipe was a hit at my book club gathering. I used a 9-in square dish instead of the recommended 13x9 and needed a total of 63 ladyfingers (3 layers of 21). The dipping of the cookies into the coffee mixture does take some practice. I ruined quite a few ladyfingers before I found my rhythm. lol

Very light pumpkin flavor! Good change on tiramisu. Not to mention this dessert has such a beautiful presentation and it worked out perfectly for our x xmas party.

Outstanding!! I made this instead of pumpkin pie this year. I followed the recipe exactly as described (the Alessi Ladyfingers were a little tricky to find but I got them at Stop and Shop, in with the seasonal food). The only thing I had to do differently was break off about an inch of the end of the cookies in the last row to to make them fit in my 13x9 pan. I made the dessert the night before since we had to travel the next day. It was absolutely amazing!! I love pumpkin pie but this knocked everyone's socks off. I can't wait to make it again for my office party in a few weeks, I will look like a genius. Thank you!!!

Best tiramisu ever! I added a bit more pumpkin (probably about 1/3 cup more) and some pumpkin pie spice and it was just amazing. THIS is my every year Thanksgiving dessert. The Frangelico is a wonderful touch.

I made this recipe, I don't see how they got layers out of the amount the recipe called for. I had to double the recipe to make two layers in my 9x13 inch casserole dish. Aside from that problem it turned out wonderful! I made some modifications, I used two teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead of all the separate ingredients, in each batch of the layers. I also changed the dipping recipe. I used 1/4 cup rum, 1/4 cup maple syrup,1 cup water,1 cup coffee and 2/3 cup dark brown sugar 1/2 cinnamon stick and 1/4 tsp nutmeg, after it cooled I added pumpkin latte creamer that gave it the flavor I was looking to meld the flavors together. I topped it with homemade crushed pistachio brittle to give a little crunchy texture to a soft desert!! A real keeper, Sew-crazy
