Sweet Potato Pie Tiramisu

Thanksgiving is almost here and I simply cannot wait! Every year, I pull out all the stops in dessert land. I definitely attempt to keep some items traditional like your standard apple pies and pound cakes as part of our holiday meals but I love a good Southern inspired twist that creates lots of ohhs and ahhs just the same. That’s where this Sweet Potato Pie Tiramisu recipe comes in.

  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, softened

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 15 ounces sweet potato in syrup, drained and mashed or homemade if you have time which makes it taste even better!
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract separated
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh whipped cream separated
  • 1/4 cup warm coffee
  • 17.5 ounces ladyfingers

To Make Filling:

  • Add mascarpone cheese and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and all brown sugar to stand mixer and beat until smooth.

  • Lastly, fold 1 1/2 cups whipped cream into the sweet potato mixture and set aside.

To Assemble the Tiramisu:

  • Add remaining teaspoon of vanilla extract to a bowl with coffee and stir together.
  • Arrange a full row of ladyfingers at the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.
  • Pour 1/2 of warm coffee mixture over ladyfingers to soak them.
  • Next take half of the sweet potato mixture and smooth over the top of the ladyfingers.
  • Next create another layer by repeating all steps starting with adding another row of ladyfingers, pour coffee sauce on ladyfingers, and finally add the rest of the sweet potato mixture.
  • Lastly, take remaining 1 cup of whipped cream and whisk in remaining tablespoon of granulated sugar and spread over the top of the tiramisu.
  • Garnish the top of the tiramisu with crumbled gingersnaps over whipped topping and a little ground cinnamon.
  • Place the springform pan in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving.
