The best way to finish a good Italian meal? A large slice of delicious tiramisu! This Italian dessert is made with layers of long ladyfinger cookies soaked in espresso, mascarpone cream, and cocoa powder. Unlike cannoli or panettone, which have origins centuries old, tiramisu is a relatively new dessert that is said to have been created in the famous Le Beccherie restaurant in the 1960s. Now the dessert is ubiquitous in Italian restaurants around the world. Supermarket Italy has the ingredients you need, including ladyfinger cookies, to make your own homemade tiramisu recipe, as well as pre-crafted tiramisu snack cakes for on the go.
