Meet Pumpkin Tiramisu – the fall version of an Italian classic dessert that is about to make this cozy season extra sweet! The alternating layers of pumpkin pie mascarpone filling and coffee-soaked lady fingers capture all the flavors of a pumpkin spice latte but even better!
The Pumpkin Mascarpone Filling
My favorite part about Tiramisu now that I’ve gotten older and my tastebuds have matured is that it’s not too sweet. The filling is rich and custard-like without being overbearing and the lady fingers are so light and fluffy. The coffee adds a strong robust taste to balance the whole dessert out.
It’s also incredibly easy to make, no baking necessary! It comes together in less than an hour. The toughest part is waiting for it to chill and set in the fridge.
Here are the ingredients you need for the pumpkin spice mascarpone filling:
- pumpkin puree
- egg yolks
- granulated white sugar
- pumpkin pie spice
- vanilla extract
- heavy cream
Start by adding the pumpkin puree, egg yolks, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl. Just whisk together until smooth!
Then add the mascarpone and heavy cream to the mix and use a hand held mixer or stand mixer with the whisk attachment to beat until you have a smooth consistency that is thick and fluffy. And that’s the hardest part of the recipe in my opinion!
Layering and Assembling
For the next part of the recipe, you’ll need Lady Fingers and strongly brewed coffee! I like to add a little bit of brown sugar to the coffee for just a very teeny tiny amount of sweetness. You can add more if you’d like.
To prepare the tiramisu in, you will need a 9×13 baking dish or pan. Dunk one lady finger at a time in the coffee very quickly. The cookies soak up the coffee very quickly and you don’t want it too soggy. QUICK DUNK!
Arrange the soaked lady fingers in a layer on the bottom of the dish. If there are any small spaces where a whole lady finger won’t fit, break the cookie into a smaller piece so it can squeeze in.
Then add about half of the filling on top and spread into an even layer. If you prefer a thinner layer, add less to your desired amount.
Now repeat the dipping of the lady fingers in the coffee and arrange in a layer above the filling. Then add the remaining filling on top and spread in an even layer. Once again, if you prefer a thinner layer of cream, be less generous with the amount!
The last part is to tightly wrap the dish with saran wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 3 to 4 hours. Overnight is better though so the flavors and layers have time to set all together!
To serve, sprinkle a little pumpkin pie spice on top, slice, and enjoy!
