Sherri Snedecor


1 pint fresh strawberries
1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
1 c. mascarpone cheese
1/2 c. heavy cream
2 T. coffee-flavored liqueur
18 ladyfingers
1/3 c. chilled espresso
1/2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

1. Cut off the tops of the strawberries and slice the berries. Reserve 2 large whole berries for garnish.

2. In a blender, place 2 c. of strawberries and 2 T. confectioners sugar; blend to puree and set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, 1/4 c. cream, 1/4 c. sugar, and liqueur; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 1-1 1/2 min. until thickened.

4. Place 6 ladyfingers on a serving plate and brush each with approximately 1 tsp. cold espresso coffee. Spread or pipe out 1/2 of the cheese mixture over the ladyfingers, and layer with half of the sliced strawberries.

5. Repeat with the next 6 ladyfingers, espresso, remaining cheese mixture, and sliced strawberries; top with remaining 6 ladyfingers.

6. In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/4 c. heavy cream with 2 T. sugar; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until just whipped, approximately 1 min. Spread cream evenly over top layer of ladyfingers.

7. Dust cocoa over whipped cream, and garnish with 2 reserved strawberries. Pour strawberry puree onto two serving plates. Cut tiramisu in half, and place onto puree.
