Nothing screams summer like spending a nice weekend at a cottage or eating berries,  especially strawberries in my case .

Luckily for me I usually get to enjoy Strawberries twice a year. The first time in Italy, strawberries arrive in late April and early May and in Canada in early July.

How to Clean Strawberries:

  • Leave the stem on the strawberries when washing, it helps the strawberries absorb less water (make sure to never soak the strawberries in water).
  • Place the strawberries in a large colander.
  • Rinse the strawberries under cold water.
  • Moving them gently with your hand to remove any dirt.
  • Pat them dry with a paper towel.

  • 2 cups chopped strawberries (332 grams)

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup cold water (118 grams)


  • 1 pasteurized egg*

*The egg can be left out if you wish.


    • To make the strawberry juice: Clean and chop the strawberries into small pieces sprinkle with sugar, place strawberries, lemon juice and water in a blender, blend until smooth, pour into a bowl and set aside.
    • To make the cream mixture: In a medium bowl beat the egg (if using) for approximately 30 seconds then add the sugar, mascarpone and cream, beat on medium until thickened. (approximately 5-10 minutes, you don’t want it to be too thick or too thin, nice and creamy ).
    • Putting it all together: Lady Finger Cookies (approximately 30 or more if needed) 1 baking dish (I used  10 x 7 inch / 26 x 17 cm).
    • In a small bowl add half the strawberry juice to start,(you may have left over strawberry juice, which is great over ice cream or even add a little more sugar and it makes a great drink) dip the lady finger cookies in the juice (turning to coat all the cookie with juice, but don’t leave them submerged in the juice) then arrange cookies on bottom of baking dish and cover with half the cream mixture, cover with the sliced strawberries, repeat cookies for another layer and cover with remaining cream mixture.

      I recently made the Strawberry Tiramisu and everyone loved it! It’s a great change for the summer season. I plan on making it for our Memorial day cookout.
      I did made it without the egg and it was still fantastic. And my husband used the extra strawberry sauce on his ice cream. Such great recipe!!

      1. Hi Arlene, to make the juice you could use frozen strawberries, although to for the rest of the dessert, I do recommend fresh but if you want to try with frozen, be sure to let them thaw then dry with a paper towel to remove as much excess moisture as possible, if not they will just make the dessert really soupy and you don’t want that. I hope that helps. Take care!
