Tiramisu


 I love this dessert but it doesn’t always come out well. I have been searching for a recipe that’s sure to be easy and will turn out perfect! Recipe is not mine and neither is the image. This is also going into my wish list of have to make things in the near future! I have also inserted a picture of the Italian Lady Fingers aka Savoiardi.

Ingredients:

6 cups fresh strawberries or blueberries
 
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cups fresh raspberries
40 savoiardi (Italian ladyfingers)
16 oz (450 g) mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
2/3 cup icing sugar
2 cups heavy cream

Method:

1.In a non-reactive saucepan over medium heat add the strawberries or blueberries, the granulated sugar and the lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved and the berries soften up and release their juices. Add the raspberries and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Make the mascarpone cream
2.In a large bowl add the mascarpone cheese, heavy cream and icing sugar. Beat using an electric mixer until you get a smooth mixture.

Assemble the Tiramisu
3.Lay half of the ladyfingers on a 9 x 13 inch or similar serving dish. Pour half of the berry sauce over the ladyfingers and spread evenly. Top with half of the Mascarpone cream and again, spread evenly over the berry compote.

4.Repeat with the remaining ladyfingers, berry compote and Mascarpone cream.

5.Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (better if refrigerated overnight).
