    The recipe was to bland and underwhelming. To make it more similar in taste to actual tiramisu I added in 1 Tbs of lemon zest and substituted Cafe Tastle Platinum Expresso Freeze Dried Instant Coffee. (Available from Ebay or Walmart.

    In the TIRAMISU COOKIES recipe, I believe you forgot one of the ingredients (either cinnamon or nutmeg?) with part of the sugar topping put on the cookies with the glass that you're supposed to flattened them with; is that possible?

    This cookie recipe is a great idea, but disappointed on flavor and other difficulties. The cookies need additional rum extract and the filling needs additional coffee. A tablespoon of cookie dough is enough for both sides of the sandwich and mine did not come out beautifully rounded on the top. The mascarpone was delicious in the filling. For a recipe that sounds so promising it did not deliver.
