Yanked tiramisu

Tiramisu is Italian for "make me happy." The jolt of coffee one perceives in this dessert is the reason for the nomenclature. It is fairly new to the cooking arena, since only about the late 60s has it been offered up to chefs to interpret on their own. And here is The Yankee Chef's interpretation.

Though I don't use ladyfingers in my presentation, I use something even better: molasses cookies. I think these go absolutely perfectly, flavor-wise, with the other levels of taste, and the texture is slightly firmer, with a little crispness from the edge of each cookie that helps tie everything in. Although I don't soak the cookies in coffee, I add the flavor of espresso and soak the cookies in another New England mainstay: rum!
