Tiramisu is one of the most widely recognized Italian desserts. In Italian the word for this sweet dessert actually means "pick me up", likely referring to the caffein-laden espresso used to make this delectable treat. 

Tiramisu consist of two layers of lady fingers soaked in espresso with the optional addition of liquor and sugar, filled and iced with whipped cream and mascarpone cheese and garnished with the chocolate shavings, which is refrigerated before being served. 

I recommend you actually use real espresso in this recipe, as the authentic flavor of the dish only shines through when real Italian ingredients are used. Also, you may find it difficult to find savoiardi (ladyfingers) that adequately soak up the coffee. I suggest looking for an Italian brand cookie (alternatively sponge cakes can be used) . Then get ready to make a "WOW"-ing dessert!
