It’s my favorite time of year — Pumpkin Week! I teamed up with a group of food bloggers to share all kinds of pumpkin recipes, including drinks, savory recipes, sweet recipes — even dog treats!

#PumpkinWeek 2017

My final Pumpkin Week recipe is my most favorite: pumpkin tiramisu. I love all kinds of tiramisu: original, lemon-flavored, etc. If there is tiramisu on a restaurant dessert menu, you can be sure I'll order it.

Unlike original tiramisu, however, this one doesn't contain raw egg, so it's safe for the immuno-compromised and pregnant women to eat. There's no need for an egg, because pumpkin acts like an egg in that it binds ingredients together and moistens the finished dish. Kids probably shouldn't eat this, because of the liqueur in the coffee mixture that the ladyfingers soak in. You can substitute hazelnut coffee syrup, but reduce the ⅔ cup of sugar to ⅓ cup.

Speaking of that liqueur, typically, tiramisu is flavored with marsala wine. In this recipe, it's swapped for hazelnut liqueur, which complements the pumpkin flavor better. And let me tell you, that soaking liquid smells SO GOOD while it's simmering.

While original tiramisu is finished with a light sifting of cocoa powder or chocolate, this pumpkin tiramisu is coated in a light layer of cinnamon sugar. You could still go with the chocolate, if you prefer, but I prefer the cinnamon sugar.

This is a simply delicious recipe. The pumpkin cream is light and airy. My husband, who isn't a particular fan of pumpkin OR tiramisu, went back for seconds. Because it's no-bake, and best when made ahead, it's an ideal dessert for a large holiday meal, like Thanksgiving.
