Ingredients:

Strawberry Tiramisu

  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries, divided
  • 8 tablespoons powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, divided
  • 18 ladyfingers
  • 1/3 cup chilled espresso
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions:

In a blender, place 2 cups of strawberries and 2 tablespoons sugar; blend to puree; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, 1/4 cup cream, and 4 tablespoons sugar; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until thickened. Place 6 ladyfingers on a serving plate and brush each with approximately 1 teaspoon cold espresso coffee. Spread 1/2 of the cheese mixture over the ladyfingers, and layer with half of the remaining sliced strawberries. Repeat with the next 6 ladyfingers, espresso, remaining cheese mixture, and sliced strawberries; top with remaining 6 ladyfingers. In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup cream with 2 tablespoons sugar; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until just whipped, approximately 1 minute. Spread cream evenly over top layer of ladyfingers. Dust cocoa over whipped cream. Pour strawberry puree onto two serving plates. Cut tiramisu in half, and place onto puree. Makes 4 servings.
