    NOT gluten free!

    I would love some tiramisu, but the last I heard, ladyfingers were not gluten-free, nor does this recipe call for a gluten-free version of them. Since this is a recipe that came up when I did a search for gluten-free, dairy-free recipes, this is not a safe recipe for me or other people needing to avoid gluten.

    Gluten-Free Tiramisu

    Yes, there are GF ladyfingers! Saw them last week at local health food store. I think the brand was Schar. Some of the Walmart stores are now carrying a lot more GF items. Yeah! Just wonder if one can use cashew butter (jar) and how much? I would think this would be fantastic, esp., if one hasn't had tiramisu in years.
