Tiramisu with Frangelico and Orange

Published November 1, 2007. From Cook's Illustrated.

Why this recipe works:

For the perfect tiramisu recipe, we determined just the right proportions of the ingredients and perfected our dipping technique, so that the ladyfingers would be properly moistened but not saturated with a mixture of coffee and dark rum.

Serves 10 to 12

Amaretto, an almond-flavored liqueur, can be substituted for the Frangelico. In a pinch, brandy and even whiskey can stand in for the dark rum. Do not allow the mascarpone to warm to room temperature before using it; it has a tendency to break if allowed to do so. Be certain to use hard, not soft ladyfingers (see related Ask Cook's information on shopping for ladyfingers).
