Strawberry Tiramisu

I’m glad to live in Tennessee if for no other reason than the fresh strawberries grown in this state.  I’ve never had a sweeter,  juicer strawberry anywhere else.  Strawberry Tiramisu is the perfect dessert to welcome summer and makes an impressive presentation for minimal effort.

  • 2 cups strawberries – washed and stems removed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • juice from one lemon
  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 pint whipping cream – whipped
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries – washed, stems removed, cut into slices
  • 3 3 oz packages ladyfingers

Add the 2 cups whole strawberries, 3/4 cup sugar, and lemon juice into a blender.  Puree mixture until smooth. Pour the strawberry puree mixture into a medium sauce pan.  Set heat to high until the mixture begins to boil.  Whisk frequently while mixture boils for 1 minute.  Remove pan from heat and let mixture cool.

In a large mixing bowl add the mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar.  Beat with an electric mixer until well combined.  Fold the whipped cream into the cheese/sugar mixture.  Beat for 1-2 minutes or until a fluffy consistency is formed.

Cover the bottom of an 8×8 Pyrex with a layer of ladyfingers.  Brush a generous amount of the strawberry puree mixture over ladyfingers.  Next spread about 1/3 of the cream mixture over the glazed ladyfingers.  Then top the cream layer with fresh sliced strawberries.  Repeat this layering process 2 more times.  Save any remaining strawberry puree and fresh sliced strawberries for garnish.  Refrigerate the Strawberry Tiramisu, berries, and puree 2 hours or more before serving.  Refrigerate any leftovers.
