My mom's friend introduced us to this recipe many years ago. Ever since it has been a favorite no-bake dessert in my collection. This is such a easy recipe and can be made a day ahead of time. In fact, I think it always tastes better on the second day when the Ladyfingers have softened and the flavors intensify. I've definitely had leftover tiramisu for breakfast in the past and always thought it tasted better than the night before.
When it comes to choosing the Ladyfingers, I have realized that the ones from Trader Joe's are better for this recipe since they soften sooner than other brands. However, I've made this plenty of times without the Trader Joe's brand and still really enjoyed it. In those instances, I would allow the tiramisu to sit in the fridge overnight. There are raw eggs in this, which I know some people do not eat, so keep that in mind if you make this for somebody else. Also, if you don't have any chocolate at home when you make this, you could sprinkle the top of the tiramisu with cocoa powder instead of shaved chocolate.
