All right people, here's the recipe for my super duper pumpkin tiramisu. This is seriously one of the easiest desserts I have ever made. No baking, no fuss. And feel free to be generous with the booze.

Pumpkin Tiramisu
(courtesy of Bon Appetit)
  • 1 1/2 cups chilled whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • One 8-oz container mascarpone cheese
  • One 15-oz can pure pumpkin
  • 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/4 tsp each cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg)
  • Two 3-oz (or one 7-oz) package halved ladyfingers
  • 4 T rum, divided
  • 2 oz crushed amaretti cookies
Beat whipping cream and sugar until peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice; beat just until filling is smooth. Line bottom of 9-inch-diameter springform pan with half of the ladyfingers, overlapping and crowding to fit. Sprinkle with 2 T rum. Spread half of filling over ladyfingers. Repeat with the rest of the ladyfingers, rum, and remaining filling. Smooth. Wrap tightly in plastic and then foil. Chill overnight. To unmold, run a knife around inside edge of pan. Release pan sides; sprinkle with cookies.


After the holidays, it's back to healthy eating for me. Keep an eye out for South Beach friendly recipes this week (and possibly next week).
