Strawberry Tiramisu – Family Fresh Meals


A fabulous dessert with a new, fruity twist.

Tiramisu has got to be one of the most ah-may-zing desserts ever. Just listen to the description: sweet, delicate ladyfinger cookies dipped in coffee, and then layered with a creamy filling made from eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese whipped together and sprinkled with cocoa. You’ve got to love that, right?Strawberry tiramisu in baking pan

Well, unless you’re one of those people who hates coffee, of course. Then what you’re thinking is probably, “Ick, why did you have to ruin that fantastic dessert by putting coffee in it?”

If you’re in that category, or someone in your family is, this Strawberry Tiramisu is for you. It’s got the same amazing layers as the original, but instead of coffee, the ladyfingers are dipped in a sweet strawberry puree spiked with Grand Marnier. And instead of cocoa on top, it’s got sliced fresh strawberries to double down on the strawberry deliciousness.top down image of Strawberry Tiramisu in baking dish

And just like the original, Strawberry Tiramisu requires no baking. Just mix the filling, dip the cookies, layer everything in the pan, and chill. So it’s perfect for summertime.
This version of tiramisu is light, moist, rich, creamy, and fruity, all in one. It’s a dessert everyone, including coffee haters, can love.ingredients for Strawberry Tiramisu

Recipe Tips: 

  • Ingredients at room temperature (e.g., eggs, mascarpone) will mix together more easily.
  • Cooking the egg yolks over steam instead of directly over heat (i.e., double boiler style) will help to prevent curdling.
  • You could also sprinkle powdered sugar over the top or top with whipped cream swirls and/or white chocolate shavings or even the traditional cocoa powder.
  • Substitute orange juice for the Grand Marnier for a non-alcoholic version.

Storage:

  • Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
