Kevin Twohy writes: “I wanted to take a Tiramisu to school for my class to celebrate my 17th birthday. Mom said it’d be better to have a recipe with cooked eggs and little alcohol. So we tried a few recipes and came up with this combination. My classmates raved about it and I liked the extra flavors of hazelnut and Amaretto, which replaced the bite of the usual brandy. I think it’s the best recipe ever!”
