Super Simple Tiramisu

Have you ever heard of a super simple tiramisu?  Not me.  I am not sure who has the time to make a difficult and time consuming tiramisu, but I envy them.  As much as I would love to do that, but with two kids in addition to my full time graphic design business, it is just not in the cards for me.  Ok maybe that is an excuse.  Yeah, I think it is.  I am just lazy.

This recipe came along, and now my mission to make a news worthy tiramisu is complete.  This literally takes a few minutes to prepare, and requires no alcohol or raw eggs.  Why are those things even in the hard to make version anyway?  Hey, I am all for Amaretto, but if it is in the dessert, then my kids can’t eat it, and then the war will start.  And personally, without the amaretto, I am not prepared for that kind of war.  

Make sure to not over beat the cheese, and the cream, or else it will curdle, and that my friends is not appetizing.  Make sure to dip the lady fingers for just a second, or they will be soggy.  Boy, these are some super picky ingredients aren’t they?  In the end, your guests will be amazed about how good this seriously is, so just go with the story of how hard it was to make, after your next get together.  You deserve it.
