* 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

1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons Kahlua or coffee-flavored liqueur
30 ladyfingers or savoiardi
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
