Not to be dramatic or anything, but tiramisu is my favorite dessert on the planet. I love everything about it! Soaked ladyfingers, creamy mascarpone and the ease of it being one of those desserts that gets better as it sits. Today I’m sharing a sweet-tart version with whipped mascarpone, ladyfingers soaked with lemon syrup and fresh berries that is bound to be the fresh-faced star of your 4th of July get-together.
Begin by making the lemon syrup. Bring water, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
