I don't normally bring a dish to a party until I've "test drove" it with my immediate family, but I decided to go ahead and trust the allrecipes community and brought this to our extended family Christmas party this past weekend. It was a hit. I'm picky about my tiramisu and was doubtful that I could produce one that I really liked. This is it.
I took the advice of several others and doubled the coffee mixture, and had just enough. I didn't have any rum on hand, so I substituted with Frangelica. Yum!
Also, as noted by other posts, don't judge by the way it tastes when you are making it. I thought it quite blah during preparation, but after 2 days in the fridge it was delicious.
For presentation purposes, I made it in a trifle dish. I modified the layering a bit, but used the same amount of ingredients and it fit perfectly. I covered the bottom of the dish with lady fingers and then also stood them up along the outside of the circumference of the dish (on the first layer only). I then did a layer of filling, layer of cream, second layer of ladyfingers, layer of filling, layer of cream, third layer of ladyfingers, layer of filling, layer of cream.
Thanks for adding another great dessert recipe to my collection!
