Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup (10floz/282ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) mascarpone cheese, room temperature (see substitute idea below)
  • cup (2½ oz/71g) sugar For the syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons creme de cassis (optional but yummy!)
  • 3/4 cup (6floz/170ml) water
  • 3/4 cup (6oz/170g) sugar For the cheese mix.
  • 1 cup (5oz/142g) raspberries
  • 1 cup (5oz/142g) blueberries
  • 2 cups (10ozz/284g) strawberries, quartered
  • 1 pack Lady Fingers (Boudoir biscuits/Savoiardi. Look for eggless if needed)
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • Toasted slivered almonds and additional berries for garnish
Instructions
  1. First, make a simple syrup by combining the water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Once the sugar had dissolved turn off the heat and add in all of the berries. Stir the berries with the syrup to form a berry infused simple syrup.
  2. Strain the berries from the syrup and set aside. Now it's a good time to add in the cassis to the berry syrup. 

  3. In a large bowl using a hand mixer or large whisk, beat the whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form.
  4. Add in the mascarpone cheese and continue to whip to stiff peaks.

  5. Dip ladyfingers in the berry simple syrup liquid and place in an 8×8 pan to make the first layer – you can fit about 7 cookies in each layer. Don't let them soak as they will fall apart, just a quick dunk in the syrup is enough.
  6. Spread half of the whipped cream mixture on top of the first layer of ladyfingers then top with a layer of the soaked berries. Repeat process with the second layer of ladyfingers, cream mixture, and berries.
  7. Dust the top of tiramisu with powdered sugar and sprinkle over some toasted slivered almonds.
  8. Refrigerate for about 2-4 hours (it gets even better in the fridge and is a perfect make-ahead dessert).
  9. Cover and store in the fridge for up to 1 day.
