This was my first crack at making tiramisu and boy was it successful! I had some extra marscarpone cheese that I needed to use up, so I decided to try this recipe out. I made the ladyfingers from this site, which were surprisingly easy, and they formed a perfect base for the rest of the ingredients. I made this in a casserole dish (about 8 x 13) instead of a bowl, which worked out fine. Instead of using Kahlua, I just used espresso, and the espresso actually cut through a lot of the other flavors when I took my first bite. It worked well. I also didn't have any regular granulated sugar on hand, so I used turbinado sugar and it didn't have any adverse effects on the final product. I chose to top it with an espresso-flavored dark chocolate, which I just shaved with a vegetable peeler as someone suggested. It looked like something that I might get in a fancy Italian restaurant and it tasted better than any tiramisu I've ever had. After my co-workers get a taste of this tomorrow, I'm sure it will be an often-requested favorite. This one's a definite keeper.
