How to make Pinoy style Tiramisu

Tiramisu Recipe is an Italian classic dessert that tastes so delightful and heavenly. The name Tiramisu simply means “carry me up” or “pick me up”, which this dessert actually does when you taste it, you can never resist its luscious flavors, and it’s often called an “Italian Trifle”. It is made of lady fingers, cream, coffee, cocoa powder and some chocolate shavings.

Tiramisu is even a simple and easy recipe; you can make this dessert ahead of time so that the flavors will absorb and firm to easily slice this three layered cake.  This is a great recipe for parties specially this coming Christmas season.

      You can use vanilla Wafers cookies. just dip the whole cookie in and out of the coffee really quickly and they’re perfect! Good luck!
