Tiramisu may not be a traditional Iranian dessert but it is a common dish that is enjoyed in the region and is quite familiar to many people. If to be served with children, the espresso and cognac content could be adjusted and removed. Substitute it with cocoa for a rich chocolate-y taste and add some cinnamon for added character.
