    for someone that has never liked tiramisu, i can say that this recipe wasn't bad, very good flavors and you can change it around a little bit if you like i would make it for my guests, but now a regular for me.

    Sudha Hariharan from Toronto, ON

    This was truly a success and an instant hit in my house as it just melted in the mouth and surely increased the craving for it and also earned a compliment for me that it was the perfect choice for the party that we had the other day.

    Restaurant standard tiramisu

    Susan Loh from Calgary, AB

    This is as good as any restaurant Tiramisu and so easy to make. No more store bought tiramisu for us from now on! I could not find Nestle cookie dough, so used (Italian) Ladyfingers biscuit instead and it turned out great. It's also alot cheaper than recipes using mascapone cheese (a tub is quite expensive here in Canada). This is definitely a keeper!

  •  Star(s)

    Wonderful

    A little too sweet

    Melissa from Wilkes-Barre, PA

    This recipe is a little too sweet. I think using the cookie dough is what makes it extra sweet. It is less time consuming than making a traditional tiramisu, however shaping the cookie dough is tedious.

    easy and elegant

    Sabrina from

    I'm a food service manager for our local high school. We also do catering so I'm always looking for easy and delicious recipes. When I saw this, I knew I had to try it. I first made it for a church picnic----they licked the pan clean!!! Then I made it for a catered lunch. It was a major hit!!!!

    This was really easy to make. Rich,creamy and delicious. My daughter in-law loves Tiramisu and she could not believe that I made this. She went wild and ask me to please make it again soon. No left overs and the one small piece that was left she took home. This is a real keeper.

    A little Italian recipe

    Loretta Plizka from MILWAUKEE, WI

    Usually when I made this dessert I used a regular cake recipe, but this time I tried this receipe and it really worked well for me. I used regular cream cheese instead of lite and was pleased with the results. It is amazing what I can do with a sugar dough.

    Easy gormet dessert

    Danny from Colorado springs

    It was easy to make. Family thought it was better than the restaurant Tiramisu. I baked it at 350 for 20 min as I'm at high altitude (6500 feet). I decided to cut all 20 pieces in half top to bottom and press the pieces together to get the 1"x2.5" that was called for. If I can make it then anyone can.

    Mary Dempster from HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA

    These are so simple to make and look so professional. It is great to get so many compliments especially when you know that it is just the recipe and not the pastry cook. Our family love chocolate but these are a wonderful change of pace. I look forward to making them several times before Christmas this year. Thank you .

    My daughter loves tiramisu. I saw this recipe and had to try it. It was so simple and better yet, it was so-o-o good. Sure saves time over making the restaurant version. Too, this tastes just as good. Not too sweet-just right.

    I Love Tiramisu!

    JAN WILKINS from Blytheville, AR

    Most recipes are more involved, especially the cake part, so I was over joyed to find one with the refrigerated sugar cookies. Of course, cooking, and moreso baking is my therapy! Always have to try these recipes, then end up giving them to neighbors so we won't end up eating it all. Especially since my husband is borderline diabetic!
