Recipe and Tips
- 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 8 ladyfinger cookies
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup mascarpone cheese
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Fresh raspberries, for garnish
- Mint leaves, for garnish
- In a saucepan, combine the raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until the raspberries break down and the mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and let it cool.
- Dip the ladyfinger cookies into the raspberry sauce, coating them on both sides. Place them in a single layer in a serving dish.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Let it cool slightly.
- In a mixing bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese until smooth. Add the melted white chocolate and mix well.
- In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream and powdered sugar until soft peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.
- Spread a layer of the mascarpone mixture over the soaked ladyfingers in the dish.
- Repeat the layers with another layer of soaked ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture.
- Cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to meld.
- Before serving, garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves.
- Make sure to completely cool the raspberry sauce before dipping the ladyfinger cookies to prevent them from becoming too soggy.
- For a stronger raspberry flavor, you can add a few drops of raspberry liqueur to the sauce.
- When melting the white chocolate, be careful not to overheat it as it can seize and become grainy. Stir it frequently and heat in short intervals.
- If you prefer a lighter texture, you can fold in some whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture before layering.
- The tiramisu can be prepared in advance and refrigerated overnight for the best flavor and texture.
