Pumpkin Tiramisu

Pumpkin Tiramisu

This creamy, delicately spiced dessert is very satisfying. If you’re looking to shake up your Thanksgiving dessert spread, look no further. This is the one. It is a no cook recipe, so it comes together in minutes. It does need to chill for a few hours, so make it earlier in the day.

Tiramisu has been one of my favorites since the first time I tasted it. I just love the creamy texture and the subtle flavors, but I love this pumpkin version even more than the classic version.

Traditionally, tiramisu contains alcohol, but I decided to leave it out because I’m not a fan of boozy desserts, but if you are, by all means, booze it up.

I ditched the traditional ladyfingers in favor of Biscoff cookies, and it just works. That shouldn’t be surprising, as Biscoff cookies and coffee are a match made in heaven.
