Do you remember that creamy delicious Meyer Lemon Curd I posted the other day? Well this is what I made with it. I was hoping that using the curd in a recipe, it would stop me from eating it by the spoonful. This is usually the case because when I start a baking spree, I tend to only do a quality control tasting then hand it over to my ravenous family to consume the rest. This, however, was not the case with this Raspberry Lemon Tiramisu. I mean who can resist fresh raspberries, creamy lemon curd, sweet mascarpone, and lady fingers!? Well, I most certainly could not!
When berries were on sale last weekend at our local store, I stocked up. I envisioned spring desserts served outside on our farm table sandwiched between bouquets of tulips, fresh grapefruit cocktails, and friends. Unfortunately, these dreams have to wait a bit longer as my tulips have not yet bloomed and every weekend California seems to be getting flash flood warnings. Until then though, we will be comfortably eating this tiramisu and drinking cocktails in the comfort of our warm and dry living room.
But when the occasion presents itself, this will be the first recipe I make. It is absolutely stunning with the red and yellow colors, and full of flavor. My favorite part about this recipe is that you do not have to bake it. In fact, aside from making the raspberry puree to dip the lady fingers in, there is no other cooking. Wait I take that back. You MUST make the Meyer Lemon Curd to go with it (posted a couple of days ago). It only takes a few minutes to make and is 10x better than store bought curd. Trust me!
So if you need to cook for a crowd, make this. It will be gorgeous on your Easter table. Enjoy!
