World Famous Pumpkin Tiramisu

Pumpkin Tiramisu

1/4 cup pure maple syrup or maple-flavor syrup
1 tablespoon bourbon
1/2 of a 15-ounce can (3/4 cup) pumpkin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 of an 8-ounce container mascarpone cheese, softened
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 3-ounce package ladyfingers, split
Ground nutmeg or freshly grated nutmeg

1. Line a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap; set aside. For syrup,
in a small bowl, combine maple syrup and bourbon. Set aside.

2. For filling, in a small bowl, combine pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and
salt. In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup whipping cream and
granulated sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gently fold whipped cream into pumpkin mixture.

3. For topping, in another small mixing bowl, combine mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar. Beat on low speed until combined. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup whipping cream just until thickened (do not overbeat).

4. To assemble, arrange half of the ladyfingers in a single layer in the
bottom of the prepared pan. Drizzle evenly with half of the syrup. Top
with half of the filling, spreading evenly. Arrange remaining
ladyfingers in a single layer over filling. Drizzle with remaining syrup
and top with remaining filling. Dollop topping over filling. Using the
back of a spoon, carefully spread topping evenly over filling. Cover and chill for 8 to 24 hours.

5. Use the plastic wrap to lift tiramisu out of pan. Place tiramisu on a
serving platter. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Carefully cut the dessert
crosswise into slices. Makes 6 servings.
