Pumpkin Tiramisu

The last course from our dinner this past weekend was a Pumpkin Tiramisu.  It was light, fluffy and had great flavor.  I found this recipe in the 2009 BH&G Ultimate Italian magazine

The ingredients

It starts with a pound cake cut into 16 slices and layered in a 8x8 baking dish

The pound cake is brushed with the Frangelico and layered with the pumpkin cream mixture

Ending lastly with whipped cream and grated nutmeg and chilled for about 8 hours or overnight... really good, really easy!  Very fall'ish!
