Mini Pumpkin Tiramisu

Sharing is caring!

As promised, here is the final piece to the holiday menu for Breakstone’s Triple Churned blogger contest.

In staying with the theme of mini menu items, my last component is a delicious Mini Pumpkin Tiramisu. I wanted to create something that would utilize leftover pumpkin puree and wow your dinner guests without the time consuming preparation.

I have created a pleasing dessert that will allow you to bring a little elegance to your holiday meal. These pumpkin-spiced tiramisus have a decadent flavor that will be hard to resist. This delicious dessert starts with spongy lady fingers brushed with Espresso, then layered with a rich, velvety pumpkin flavored sour cream and cream cheese mixture.

These mouth-watering tiramisus are best served in mini parfait glasses, providing your guests with the perfect portion. With as little as a twenty minute preparation you can save yourself some time during the busy holiday season without sacrificing taste. Top with chocolate shavings to provide a little sophistication to this simple dessert.

Mini Pumpkin Tiramisus


For the Lady Finger Layer

3 ounce package of lady fingers
1 teaspoon instant espresso granules; dissolved in 2 tablespoons hot water

For the Pumpkin Sour Cream Layer

8 ounces of cream cheese; room temperature
1/4 cup Breakstone’s Sour Cream
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Whipped Topping Layer

1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar


1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, Breakstone’s sour cream, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, sugar and vanilla until well mixed. Set aside.

2. To make the whipped topping, beat the heavy whipping cream, vanilla and sugar until the mixture creates stiff peaks.

3. Lightly brush the lady fingers with the espresso until dampened on both sides (do not oversaturate).

4. Using your mini parfait glass as a template, cut out 12 circles from the lady fingers.

5. Gently place a lady finger circle into the bottom of each mini parfait glass.

6. Generously spoon or pipe the pumpkin layer over the lady fingers

7. Spoon or pipe the whipped topping directly onto the pumpkin layer.

8. Repeat layering a second time to fill the parfait glasses.


If desired, finish with a sprinkling of chocolate shavings.

How long should these be refrigerated to properly set?

Kelly- I would let them set up for at least a couple of hours. I hope this helps! -Jamie

For this recipe, must you use Breaks tones Sour Cream?


Sunday 11th of September 2016

Hi, Dennis! You can use whatever type of sour cream you like. I really do enjoy Breakstone's and highly recommend it!

Love the recipe idea. This may sound silly, but I really like the design of the glass. Would you be able to tell me which brand they are and where you got them?

These look amazing but i have 2 questions... Does it have to be that brand of sour cream and what type/flavor liqueur would u recommend also adding to it

Did you use canned pumpkin pie filling, like Libby's - or is it just plain pureed pumpkin?

Lara- I used canned pumpkin puree - like Libby's. Thanks for stopping by. Jamie
