Pumpkin Tiramisu Recipe

Most tiramisu recipes require multiple steps that can be difficult for busy home cooks. This pumpkin tiramisu is not only easy to prepare, it's one of my kids' favorite pumpkin desserts. Serve this pumpkin tiramisu on Thanksgiving instead of pumpkin pie, and watch it disappear!

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. package ladyfingers, split
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), thawed
  • 4 oz. mascarpone cheese
  • additional cinnamon for garnish (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic extends at least one inch over the sides. You will use this later to lift the tiramisu out of the pan.

  2. Arrange half the ladyfingers in a single layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.

  3. Whisk maple syrup and orange juice together in a small bowl. Pour over the ladyfingers.

  4. In a medium bowl, stir pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt together. Fold in 1 cup of the whipped topping, stirring until well-combined. Spread half of this mixture over the ladyfingers.

  5. Arrange remaining ladyfingers in a single layer over the pumpkin filling. Spread remaining pumpkin filling over this layer of ladyfingers.

  6. For tiramisu topping: Beat remaining cup of whipped topping and mascarpone cheese together until smooth. Spread evenly over pumpkin filling layer.

  7. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or as long as overnight.

  8. To serve, lift the tiramisu out of the pan using the plastic wrap. Carefully slide the tiramisu off the plastic wrap onto a serving plate. Sprinkle cinnamon on top for garnish.
