* Be sure to let the mascarpone soften at room temperature.
* The ladyfingers are incredibly absorbent; they only need a few passes through the espresso syrup to be sufficiently soaked.
* If you don't have the means to make espresso, fresh-brewed strong coffee is a good substitute.
Espresso syrup for soaking:
2 cups espresso
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons Licor43 or vanilla liqueur
For the Tiramisu:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups mascarpone cheese
1 cup pumpkin puree

3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1. Prepare the espresso and pour into a baking dish.
2. Add 1/3 cup sugar to the warm espresso and stir to dissolve.

5. Put whipping cream, vanilla, Kahlua and 1/3 cup sugar in a mixing bowl.
6. Mix on high speed until soft peaks form.
