Lemoncello Tiramisu

Lemoncello tiramisu adds a burst of bright flavor to the traditional layered Italian dessert. Instead of coffee, the primary flavor is lemon. Lemon is infused into this dessert in multiple ways. The ladyfinger cookies are soaked in lemon syrup. The custard gets lemon flavor from lemon liqueur, lemon juice and lemon zest.
