I created this recipe because I wanted to do something different with the beautiful, sweet, red ripe strawberries from our garden. It's a cool, creamy, fruity dessert that tastes as good as it looks! Please note that It needs to be refrigerated for a minimum of 6 hours before serving (overnight is preferable,) but the wait is worth it! We love it.

How to Make STRAWBERRY TIRAMISU, T's Way

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather all ingredients.
  2. Wash and hull berries.
  3. Into medium bowl, slice 1/2 of the berries (about 3 slices for medium-size, 4-5 for large.)
  4. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the granulated sugar.
  5. Slice and add remaining berries.
  6. Sprinkle with remaining granulated sugar; mix gently with large spoon, lifting berries from bottom to top; cover & refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. In mixing bowl, using electric mixer, beat cream cheese until light & fluffy.
  8. Add sweetened condensed milk, powdered sugar, salt, lemon juice, lemon extract & vanilla extract; mix until well combined.
  9. Using spatula, fold 1/2 tub whipped topping into cream cheese mixture until well combined; set aside.
  10. Gently mix berries, drain juice into rimmed dish or pie pan; set berries aside.
  11. Place lady fingers, one at a time into strawberry juice; roll lady finger twice to cover with juice. (Do not let the lady finger "soak" in the juice or it will fall apart.)
  12. Place in an 8"x8" glass dish (if doubling recipe, use 9"x13".)
  13. Repeat steps 10 & 11 until 1/2 of the lady fingers are moistened with juice and cover the bottom of 8"x8" dish.
  14. Evenly spread half of cream cheese mixture over prepared lady fingers.
