Tips:
* 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.

Ingredients

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

5. Put whipping cream, vanilla, Kahlua and 1/3 cup sugar in a mixing bowl.
6. Mix on high speed until soft peaks form.
7. Gently fold whipped cream mixture into mascarpone and pumpkin.
