for christmas we had this gingerbread tiramisu as dessert. as usual my grandma and my uncle and his family come over for christmas lunch on the 25th and it is on me to make dessert. the last years we had eg strawberry panna cotta with chocolate or a raspberry chocolate tarte. this year i actually decided on something without chocolate – shocker 😀 i know most of you probably have had enough of christmas already, however if you’ve still got some gingerbread spice, than you should try this tiramisu version. of course you can do with out the spice and maybe just season with cinnamon and cardamom, just something that gives that special touch. instead of the orange cookies you can also use any leftover gingerbread cookies, so you’re rid of them as well 😉 i prepared the tiramisu the day before and used a piping bag (that way you have nice clean glasses) to fill it into separate glasses. that way you don’t have to bother with the dessert on the special day. of course you can also make one huge bowl with the dessert as well.
