Sergio's Newfangled Spiced Pumpkin Tiramisu

By

Sergio's Newfangled Spiced Pumpkin Tiramisu: Though the classic Tiramisu is made with mascarpone or cream cheese and flavored with coffee, chocolate, and (perhaps) liqueur, there are many other options, including pumpkin.

Prep Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 50 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Italian Ladyfingers (Soft, not hard cookies)
  • 1/8 cup Frangelico Liqueur
  • 8 ounces (200 g) Mascarpone Option: Use Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) canned Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 tsp. ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground Mace
  • 1-1/2 cups Confectioner's Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Orange Extract
  • 2-1/2 cups Heavy Cream, whipped and chilled, divided

Preparation:

Arrange ladyfingers on the bottom of a 9-inch square pan. Pour the Frangelico liqueur over the soft sweet ladyfingers. (You may substitute the same volume of Orange Juice for non-alcoholic preparation.)

In a mixing bowl, blend together the mascarpone with the pumpkin puree. Add the cinnamon, ginger, mace, confectioner's sugar and orange extract.

Fold in 1-1/2 cups of the whipped cream. Pour the mixture over lady fingers.

Gently spread remaining whipped cream on top of pumpkin mixture.

Sprinkle the top with a dash or two of additional cinnamon, if desired.

Cover and refrigerate at least two hours before serving, or overnight.

Slice to serve.
