A Vistor This Morning and Christmas Dessert Recipe

Instead of making the traditional Pumpkin Pie for Christmas Dessert I went for a Pumpkin Tiramisu.

Pumpkin Amaretti Tiramisu

Just a few of the ingredients that are going to make an incredible dessert

1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 8oz container mascarpone cheese
1 15oz can pure pumpkin
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
1/4 cup Amaretto
About 25 to 40 DeLallo Savoiardi Ladyfingers
6 oz amaretti cookies, crumbled

Beat cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Combine with mascarpone, pumpkin and spices and beat until smooth.

In a small, shallow dish, pour amaretto. Dip each ladyfinger before arranging along the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch baking dish, overlapping to fit. Spread one-third of filling atop ladyfingers, evenly sprinkle with one-third amaretti cookies and repeat for two more layers.

Smooth top of dessert and wrap tightly in plastic and foil. Refrigerate. Best when chilled overnight. Serves 9


Every morning I pour myself a cup of coffee and sit in my chair in the living room.  I am always looking out the window up the mountain.  Bill asks me what I'm looking for and I told him wildlife.  We have been here almost one year and I got my wish.  I yelled for Bill to come look, a huge buck with two does.  I see doe's and small bucks all the time but to see a 5 point buck was a real treat.  Excuse the one photo you can see part of the window frame but the 2nd photo he is standing there looking down at the house.

Happy Christmas Eve

Until Next Time,
