Our answer

Nigella's White Tiramisu (from HOW TO EAT) soaks the savoiardi biscuits (cookies) in a mixture of milk and white rum. This adds moisture and flavour whilst preserving the pale colour of the biscuits.

If you can't use alcohol then we would suggest using extra milk and adding some vanilla extract to the milk. You will need to increase the amount of milk from 200mls (¾ cup) to 350mls (1½ cups) and we would suggest adding 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. However please note that many commercial vanilla extracts contain traces of alcohol, so you will need to look for an alcohol-free vanilla extract and these can usually be found in natural foods stores and on-line.
