I grew up in an American Italian household and trust me when I tell you I enjoyed amazing Italian dishes and desserts all my life, but it wasn’t until I moved out on my own that I actually tasted my first tiramisu. Tiramisu is a classic layered Italian dessert that starts with ladyfingers dipped in rum and espresso and is layered with cream and shaved chocolate. It is absolutely divine.
Since then I have taken every opportunity to enjoy that incredible creation again. Last summer I put together a Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu which was truly a celebration of summer. When I was creating my latest tiramisu, I knew it needed a little flair. Country cherry pie filling takes this classic Italian dessert and gives it a little southern personality.
Ladyfingers are dipped in cherry pie filling combined with chocolate and coffee liqueurs. They are topped with a rich cream and a mountain of shaved chocolate. Finally a heaping scoop of country style cherry pie filling is topped with more cream and chocolate. Packaged in adorable 4 ounce mason jars they are perfectly portioned desserts.
Chocolate cherry tiramisu comes together in just 15 minutes and is the perfect dessert for your holiday table this year.
