Created May 6, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons grated lemon peel (1 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 containers (8 oz each) mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 packages (7.1 oz each) ladyfingers
  • 3 cups mixed fresh berries, rinsed

Steps

  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat, granulated sugar, water, lemon peel and lemon juice to boiling. Boil until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool lemon syrup completely.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat mascarpone, cream, powdered sugar and vanilla with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • 3
    Line bottom of ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish with half of the ladyfingers. Generously brush about one-fourth of lemon syrup over ladyfingers. Spread half of mascarpone mixture evenly over ladyfinger layer. Top with half of the berries; brush with lemon syrup. Repeat layers until all ingredients are used.

    Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight before serving. Cut into 4 rows by 2 rows.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    When placing the second layer of ladyfingers over the fruit, change the direction of the ladyfingers for stability. The tiramisu will be easier to cut.
  • tip 2
    Use whatever fruit you have on hand or what fruit is in season.
