This is my pumpkin version of a tiramisu. I've been experimenting with different flavors this past year since Chris don't like rum or espresso. The ever popular green tea version made with matcha powder is always excellent. Even the version I've tried with puree strawberries was quite good. The common thread of all the desserts is the layered cheese/whipped cream and ladyfingers. For Halloween, I thought I'll make a pumpkin version. The measurement are somewhat of a guess since I was making it up as I go last night.
half a 14 oz can of pumpkin puree
4 oz of cream cheese, whipped
1/4 cup whipped cream, whipped
2 tbs powder sugar (more to taste if needed)
1/2 - 1 tsp pumpkin spices
box of ladyfingers
1/4 cup grade B maple syrup
1/4 cup hot water
honey roasted walnuts (optional, to taste)
Mix the maple syrup and hot water, let it cool for a little bit. Mix the pumpkin puree, cream cheese, sugar, pumpkin spice, and powder sugar together. Dip the ladyfingers in the maply syrup mixture and line the bottom of a shallow dish. Spread half of the pumpkin mixture on top of the ladyfingers. Sprinkle with the honey walnuts. Repeat the layers once more. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving (overnight is better).
