Nothing screams summer like spending a nice weekend at a cottage or eating berries, especially strawberries in my case . Luckily for me this year I was able to have two strawberry seasons. In Italy strawberries arrive in early May and in Canada early July.
My daughter enjoyed her stay and swim at a family cottage this past weekend and we all enjoyed a refreshing and delicious dessert made with strawberries purchased at the local farmers market. And nothing like some yummy Easy Tiramisu Recipes.
Some people like to add strawberries to their chicken salad, but I have to be honest with you, I don’t like mixing fruit with vegetables or meat so I will keep my strawberries for dessert and there is nothing like a Strawberry Tiramisu Recipe!
I think this strawberry tiramisu does justice to strawberries. It is an Easy Summer Dessert Recipe.
Not only does it call for whole strawberries, but also homemade strawberry juice. Any left over juice would be perfect over ice cream or just with ice, to be enjoyed as a delicious, cold drink. Enjoy!
- STRAWBERRY JUICE
- 2 cups whole ripe strawberries
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup cold water
- CREAM MIXTURE
- 1 cup mascarpone
- 1 cup whole cream
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg*
- Lady finger cookies approximately 12-15
To make the strawberry juice: Clean and chop the strawberries into small pieces sprinkle with sugar, place strawberries, and lime juice in a blender, blend until smooth, add water and blend again for a minute. Pour into a strainer (make sure the holes aren't too big, we want just the juice, no seeds) and using the bottom of a spoon move it around to help the juice drain into a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
To make the cream mixture: In a large bowl using a whisk, mix together sugar and egg till combined (approximately 1 minute) then add 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 12-15) 1 baking dish (I used 12 x 10 inch).
In a small bowl add half the strawberry juice,(you will have let 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, repeat cookies for another layer and cover with remaining cream mixture.
Sprinkle with unsweetened cocoa and top with strawberries. Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours, even more delicious the next day. Enjoy
