When you need a little “Pick me up” because of the cold weather outside, what better dessert to eat than a scrumptious tiramisu?
However, at the risk of sounding pretentious and making every Italian on this planet angry, I find the traditional Italian tiramisu too… straightforward and dull. I want something more exiting, new and imaginative! So instead of using lady fingers, I used the world famous Belgian ginger biscuits. (if you have never heard of them, shame on you and start googling right now! Belgium is much more than just chocolate and beer, you know.) These biscuits soaked in coffee, add a rich flavour with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and create an instant autumn vibe! I also added some marinated pear to the mascarpone mixture to turn this dessert into a showstopper, ready to be devoured in front of the fireplace.
