As faithful Facebook fans will recall, TRB recently posted a link to a scrumptious Strawberry Tiramisu recipe from Bon Appetit magazine. In true TRB fashion, she’s turned this one into a Quick and Easy recipe for her “sweetly-challenged” followers with a few minor modifications. Now that Summer 2010 is officially here, you’ll want to take this dessert along to your next barbeque.

Enjoy!

Strawberry Tiramisu
14 lady finger biscuits (such as Ferrara’s)
1 1/2 lb mascarpone cheese (such as Bel Gioso)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup strawberry preserves
3 tbsp Cointreau liquor
3 tbsp orange juice
6-10 large strawberries, hulled and sliced

1. Mix the strawberry preserves, Cointreau and orange juice in a small bowl.

2. Combine the mascarpone cheese with the powdered sugar into a spreadable mixture.

3. Using a loaf pan, spread some of the strawberry preserve mixture in the bottom.

4. Layer 7 lady fingers over the strawberry preserve mixture. Next, place some of the preserve mixture over the lady fingers. Top with a layer of mascarpone cheese. Arrange sliced strawberries on top of mascarpone. Repeat the layers, ending with strawberries on top.

5. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours before serving.
