Limoncello Tiramisu made easy-ish

Lemon anything is a personal favorite of mine. Now, mix a little lemon with mascarpone and whipping cream and I am swooning. If you are looking for a decadent and delicious spring recipe that you can make in advance... look no further. Please note, this is a boozy recipe so not for the kiddo's.

The Syrup

  • 1 ¼ cups water

  • ⅓ cup sugar

  • 1 cup limoncello

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • In a non reactive saucepan, combine the water and sugar and stir over medium-high heat until dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in the limoncello and lemon juice. Let cool.

The Layers

  • 2 7 ounce bags of ladyfingers (buy in your local grocery)

  • 24 oz mascarpone cheese

  • 14 oz prepared lemon curd (make your own or buy in the grocery store)

  • ⅓ cup limoncello

  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar

    • Use a hand or stand mixer on medium-low to combine the mascarpone cheese and the lemon curd until combined. Add the limoncello and the lemon juice and mix again. Set aside.

    • In a separate large bowl beat the heavy whipping cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Take about ⅓ of the whipped cream and fold it into the mascarpone mixture slowly. Gently fold in the rest until combined.

    • Dip each ladyfinger, one at a time, into the syrup. A couple seconds will do it.

    • Arrange each ladyfinger in a 9x13 pan (non reactive dish like glass or stainless steel) in a single layer. Cut ladyfingers to fit as needed.

    • Spread half of the mascarpone cream over the first layer of ladyfingers and smooth the top. Now make another layer and top with the mascarpone mixture.

    • Cover the dish and refrigerate at least 4 hours, overnight is even better.

The Topping

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 2-3 tablespoon powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)

  • 1 lemon, zested

    • Beat the heavy cream and powdered sugar in a large bowl until stiff peaks form.

    • You can pipe this mixture onto the chilled Tiramisu if you're feeling fancy or simply dollop it on. Sprinkle with lemon zest. Top with raspberries if you like and enjoy!
