Mmmm, Dessert

Here is a great comfort food dessert for you to enjoy.

Raspberry Tiramisu


1 cup seedless raspberry jam
6 tablespoons orange juice
1 pound mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
28 soft ladyfingers or 2 (12-ounce) pound cakes, cut into 3 by 1 by 1 1/2-inch pieces
3 (1/2 dry pint) baskets fresh raspberries (about 3 3/4 cups total)
Confectioners' sugar, for serving


Stir the jam and 4 tablespoons of the orange juice in a small bowl to blend.

Combine the mascarpone and remaining 2 tablespoons of orange juice in a large bowl to blend. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream, sugar, and vanilla in another large bowl until soft peaks form. Using a large rubber spatula, stir 1/4 of the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture to lighten. Fold the remaining whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.

Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch glass baking dish, or other decorative serving dish with half of the ladyfingers. Spread half of the jam mixture over the ladyfingers. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the jam mixture, then cover with half of the fresh raspberries. Repeat layering with the remaining ladyfingers, jam mixture, mascarpone mixture and raspberries. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.

Dust with the confectioners' sugar and serve.

Notes: Yum. Sorry for the bad pictures. There was bad winter lighting and I forgot my camera, so I had to use my cell phone.

  1. I really liked this. We used orange juice since we are non-drinkers. The lady fingers were a little dry and fresher would have worked a bit better. But this was good.
