Strawberry Tiramisu

It's strawberry season and time to dig out all those fabulous strawberry recipes! 

I decided to make a Tiramisu with a layer of strawberries and a few adjustments (I'm not a fan of the raw eggs), something I made for Daddy Ladybug for a Valentines Day dessert ages ago when we were dating.

Strawberry Tiramisu

2-3 cups fresh Strawberries
2 cups Mascarpone Cheese
2 cups Whipping Cream
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
3 Tbsp Coffee Liqueur
Ladyfingers (enough for 2 layers in your desired dish), I used 36
3 cups Hot Water
4 tsp Instant Espresso Powder
Cocoa Powder (for garnish)

In a shallow bowl, combine hot water and espresso powder, allow to cool while assembling the other layers. Slice strawberries, leaving a few unsliced for garnish, set aside. In a large bowl, whip cream, sugar, vanilla and coffee liqueur until it forms soft peaks. Add mascarpone and mix well, set aside. 

Now to assemble: Dip Ladyfingers (both sides) in coffee mixture and create a layer on the bottom of your serving dish. Top with 1/2 cheese & cream mixture and spread evenly. Add a layer of sliced strawberries, another layer of dipped Ladyfingers and the remaining layer of cheesy and cream. Dust top with cocoa powder and garnish with strawberries.

Let cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.

Delicious light and fresh dessert, perfect for entertaining or celebrating something special.
