I used this recipe, modified for individual tiramisu parfaits I made for my church youth group's Valentine's dinner fundraiser a couple days ago. We couldn't afford mascarpone, so I used the Mascarpone Substitute found here at AllRecipes instead. I also used the Ladyfingers recipe by Roxanne instead of buying store-bought ladyfingers. Since I was making these for a church function and also because children would be eating them, I omitted the rum. I used double-strength Kahlua flavored coffee, so the desserts still had that liqueur flavor to them. The custard is so simple to make, as long as you watch it carefully, stir it constantly as it's cooking, and take it off the heat as soon as it starts to smell "custardy", if that makes sense. I topped each parfait with a hand-piped chocolate heart and a sprinkling of red sugar crystals. Everyone raved about their desserts! In fact, one girl asked her tiramisu to be her Valentine :)
