"For this recipe I used strong and freshly brewed espresso, not the instant powder. It makes a difference, trust me. Make sure to not soak the ladyfingers, but just quickly dunk them in the Amaretto-espresso mixture. That way they will stay soft and melt together with the rich cream, but won't be mushy. If Amaretto isn't your favorite, you can leave it out—I personally prefer my tiramisu without it. Please note that we have updated the images, condensed the steps, and added a new video to this recipe. However, the original recipe remains unchanged."
