Super Simple Pumpkin Tiramisu

This needs to set up overnight, so start one day ahead.

Makes 8 servings.


1 ½ cups chilled whipping cream

3/4 cup sugar

1 (8-oz.) container mascarpone cheese

1 (15-oz.) can pure pumpkin

3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or 1/4  teaspoon each cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg)

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 (3-oz.) packages halved ladyfingers

1/4 cup Frangelico

2 oz. crushed amaretti cookies


Beat whipping cream and sugar until peaks form.  Mix mascarpone cheese, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla; beat just until filling is smooth; fold in whipped cream.

Line the bottom of a 9-in. diameter springform pan (with 2-¾ inch-high sides) with 1 package ladyfingers, overlapping and crowding to fit.  Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Frangelico.  Spread half of filling over ladyfingers.

Repeat with second package of ladyfingers, remaining 2 tablespoons Frangelico, and remaining filling.  Smooth with spatula.  Wrap tightly in plastic, then foil. Chill overnight.

To unmold, run a knife around inside edge of pan.  Release pan sides; sprinkle with amaretti cookies.
