The popular Italian coffee torte Tiramisu receives a tasty reinvention with the addition of bitter amaretti cookies to the cake's layers. This is a great substitute in flavor for the lady finger biscuits to add new and bold tastes to the dessert.

Often tiramisu is made using long oval lady finger biscuits that are soaked overnight in coffee and layered with a homemade custard whipped cream. This recipe by food blogger Joy the Baker subs in amaretti cookies for the lady fingers to add a robust almond taste to the dish. The amaretti cookies are soaked in a mixture of rum and coffee and then topped with a homemade vanilla whipped custard and coco powder several times. The dessert is chilled rather than baked making it an easy recipe to replicate.
