It’s really hard to believe that Christmas is next week already. We had our first big snowfall over the weekend and decided to act snowed in. We had a fire going in the fireplace, watched movies, and wrapped Christmas presents. Marc watched Fargo and Say Anything for the first time and one day I’m going to insist he watches The Goonies and The Princess Bride. I only did a few necessities on my to-do list. I washed my hair, but did nothing else to it all weekend. At one point Marc said my hair was “kind of crazy,” dashing my hopes that it was messy cute. It was a spectacular weekend.
Tiramisu is the perfect lazy day dessert. It’s been a few years since it was my go-to dessert, but the big containers of mascarpone were on sale and I just had to make it. You know, food fate. This time I added cinnamon and bourbon for a holiday take on tiramisu. If tiramisu sounds intimidating, let me assure you that it is very easy. As I was making it, I thought to myself that it really is the perfect dessert. There are only a few ingredients, it’s no-bake, easy to assemble, and tastes better the next day. The combination of coffee, cinnamon, and bourbon flavors come together beautifully. The 9×13 feeds a crowd and it would really impress at a Christmas or New Year’s Eve party.
Grab some ladyfingers and pull that bourbon off of your cute bar cart, you have tiramisu to make!
