Sweet Potato Tiramisu
Thanksgiving is almost here and I simply cannot wait!  Every year, I pull out all the stops in dessert land.  I definitely attempt to keep some items traditional like your standard apple pies and pound cakes as part of our holiday meals but I love a good Southern inspired twist that creates lots of ohhs and ahhs just the same.  That’s where this Sweet Potato Pie Tiramisu recipe comes in.

This year, I was inspired by my trip to Italy in more ways than one. When I went to Mariano’s to begin shopping for ingredients, I found the most perfect mascarpone cheese which made me immediately think of tiramisu.  With a menu item of sweet potato pie always on the dessert table, I knew blending the two would be perfection… and it certainly was!  

With my mascarpone cheese, sweet potatoes and other incredible ingredients, I headed to the check out with #MyMarianos Rewards Card to reap the benefits Mariano’s always has for its customers.   I was ready to get home and make not just Sweet Potato Tiramisu, but Sweet Potato Pie Tiramisu.
