Strawberry Tiramisu

File this one under "everything in moderation"  This is not what I would call a healthy recipe, but it is extremely delicious - and it's strawberry season, so I'm celebrating with my version of Tiramisu!  Fresh strawberries, Frangelico, and mascarpone whipped cream.  Oh my!  All this and no baking necessary.  When I make this "just because", I cut the recipe in half, or make individual portions, because I could easily eat the entire thing myself.

Eat well!

  • 1 cup strawberry preserves
  • 1 pound mascarpone cheese room temperature

  • Mix mascarpone with the remaining orange juice, in a large mixing bowl, and set aside.
  • Hull and slice half the strawberries.
  • Mix whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla, in a large mixing bowl, until sugar is dissolved. Then, using an electric mixer, whip the cream mixture until soft peaks form.
  • Gently fold the cream mixture into the mascarpone cheese mixture.
  • Spread ½ cup of the preserve mixture over the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish, or a trifle bowl.
  • Arrange enough ladyfingers over the preserves to cover.
  • Add another ¾ cup of preserve mixture on top of the ladyfingers.
  • Spread half of the whipped cream-mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.
  • Place a layer of sliced strawberries on top of the cream.
  • Repeat layering with remaining ladyfingers, preserve mixture and whipped cream mixture.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight to let ladyfingers soften.
  • When ready to serve, slice remaining strawberries, and layer on top.


If desired, divide the recipe and make individual servings as shown (you will need to break the ladyfingers into small pieces).
