Author Notes: Only 5 Ingredients!!! I think this is an easy & delicious dessert for Thanksgiving! Turkey & sides take up enough time so dessert should be an easy one! Zabaglione is an Italian dessert traditionally made with whisking together egg yolks, Marsala Wine and sugar. Instead of Marsala Wine I used ginger infused syrup in my recipe where I basically made a sugar syrup and added fresh ginger & let it cook until the syrup thickened and then let it cool. Traditional Zabaglione must be made just before serving. In France it’s called Sabayon. —onetribegourmet
