Pumpkin Tiramisu Trifle

Heather, Sprinkles Bakes

Tiramisu is the perfect pick-me-up with its coffee soaked biscuits and sweet cream. This version takes on a seasonal twist with pumpkin puree and warm spices. It looks elegant served in a tall footed trifle dish, and you’ll love that it’s no-bake! Use crisp lady fingers in this recipe and not the soft variety. You can find them in the Italian foods section at the grocery store. This sturdier version holds up well in this trifle without becoming soggy.
