A traditional Italian dessert gets a tasty cinnamon spiced twist perfect for fall in this No-Bake Cinnamon Tiramisu...
I left out the cocoa powder entirely in this no-bake version and replaced with it layers of sweet cinnamon flavor. The coffee that the ladyfingers are soaked with has been steeped with a whole cinnamon stick. Then ground cinnamon is whipped into the creamy filling. And for good measure, each slice is served with a little sprinkle of cinnamon over top. The perfect dessert for the cinnamon & tiramisu lover alike!
No-Bake Cinnamon Tiramisu
Prep Time: 5 hours, 30 mins
Cook Time: None
Ingredients (Serves 9)
- 1 package (3 oz) ladyfingers, split
- 1/4 strongly brewed coffee + 1 tbsp sugar mixed in
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 (3.5 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 cup cold milk
- 4 oz mascarpone cheese
- 1 1/2 cups whipping topping, thawed
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting
Strongly brew a cup of coffee. While still hot, mix in the sugar. Drop in the cinnamon stick and allow to steep for 1 hour. Remove the cinnamon stick and allow the infused coffee to cool completely.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the vanilla pudding mix & cold milk. Then beat in the mascarpone cheese until smooth & creamy. Fold in the whipped topping & ground cinnamon. Set aside.
Arrange half of the ladyfingers in the bottom of a 9x9 inch baking pan. Brush the ladyfingers with about half of the cooled cinnamon coffee.
Spread half of the pudding/mascarpone cheese mixture over the ladyfingers in the dish. Cover with the remaining ladyfingers; then brush the second layer of ladyfingers with the remaining coffee mixture. Top with the remaining pudding/mascarpone cheese mixture.
Cover & refrigerate for at least 4 hours & up to overnight. Top with a little whipped topping & a sprinkle of ground cinnamon before serving, if desired. Enjoy immediately. You can cover & refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days.

My husband (who likes cinnamon, but doesn't love it when there is too much) was a little skeptical at first, but he ended up absolutely loving this tiramisu! As he went back for a second piece, he told me that I had perfectly nailed the ratio of cinnamon to the cream filling & ladyfingers in this- there were subtle layers of real cinnamon flavor in each bite, but it was not overwhelming or overpowering.
Who else is giddy that fall has finally arrived?
What is your favorite dessert for fall time? :)
