My son turned thirty and for his birthday celebration I made Rose's Tiramisu. It was easier than I thought.
Tiramisu is top on my list of desserts to try at Italian restaurants. I have only attempted to make it once and it was a dismal failure. It resembled more of a brick than a light dessert. Rose's recipe surprised me with the addition of Marsala instead of rum but I liked the flavor very much. I also like how it's added to the egg yolks while cooking so the alcohol cooks out.
I did not bake the Ladyfingers, although I still plan on giving them a try. I was short on time and knew it was either the packaged version or it was not going to make the party. As it was it didn't get the full six hours chill time but it was still very good. It's even better setting over night.
