Recipe: Triple Berry Tiramisu

This is a wonderful variation of the Classic Tiramisu. Instead of using chocolate and coffee flavorings… this dessert has a berry layer in between layers of a sweet marscapone cream.

I used a red raspberry fruit syrup I found at my supermarket to drizzle over the jam covered lady fingers… you can use any brand… you can also use framboise (a clear, fruit-raspberry brandy).

I keep frozen strawberries in syrup on hand in my freezer… in this case, I defrosted them and used about 3-4 tablespoons of the defrosted strawberry liquid in the berry mixture for this recipe. I used the defrosted strawberries for something else (we use it on ice cream, on waffles and in strawberry shakes).

If you don’t have the frozen strawberries… make the berry mixture about 6 hours in advance... mix the fresh berries and 1/3 cup sugar and ¼ cup water and let the berries set. It should work out okay… but it is best to use the strawberry liquid from the defrosted strawberries because it adds such a great flavor to the berry mixture.

I had a dessert like this at a restaurant and just had to figure it out so I could duplicate it at home. I adapted various recipes until I think I got it just right. Warren truly enjoyed this dessert experiment.... he got to taste them all!
