    Did you know? 

    Did you know that Tiramisu translated means “pick me up” or “cheer me up.” The classic Italian dessert, tiramisu, is meant to be served at the end of the meal to literally cheer you up! How cute is that? I hope my take on tiramisu in this no bake pie version cheers you up as well!

    Let’s get to not-baking! ;)

    Ingredients Needed for this No Bake Tiramisu Pie

    For the Pie Crust: This is going to be a graham cracker and lady finger pie crust. Combined with a few tablespoons of melted butter makes this crust so scrump-dilly-icious. And it’s a no-bake crust!

    For the Pie Filling: Classic tiramisu cake recipes include lady fingers dipped in espresso and a mascarpone and heavy cream filling. This recipe will include just that! We only need five ingredients for  this filling: lady fingers, strong coffee or espresso, mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, and powdered sugar. 

    Chocolate Topping: A light dusting of unsweetened cocoa powder and a few pieces of shaved chocolate are all you need. They make this pie look so pretty and add a touch of chocolate flavoring. Shaved chocolate is totally optional, but if you do choose to include it, it adds a beautiful touch. Grab a cheese grater and a sturdy dark chocolate bar and grate over the pie until desired amount is achieved. For this recipe, I grabbed a dark, coffee-infused chocolate bar to really enhance the coffee flavors from the pie. If you haven’t heard of Taza Chocolate, they’re my absolute favorite and local to my area but you can buy them online!
