Tiramisu Parfaits

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

    2 Packages (i ounce each) - what the heck. I wasted a lot of time and ingredients because of the misprint. Sounded good but why didn't anyone catch this before I tried to assume what you meant ah yes we all know what assume means...

    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!
