Mascarpone Cream:

  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Few Drops of Almond Extract
  • 2/3 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 4 oz Mascarpone Cheese (chilled)

Strawberry Jam:

  • 1 cup Diced Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • Squeeze of Lemon Juice


  • Ladyfingers (enough to layer twice)
  • Strawberry Syrup (from cooking strawberries)


  1. Prepare the Mascarpone Cream:
    • Set up a double boiler: whisk egg yolks and 1 tbsp sugar over boiling water until fluffy and dissolved, ensuring the mixture reaches 160°F. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
    • Whip heavy cream with a pinch of salt and 1 tbsp sugar until fluffy. Refrigerate.
    • Once the egg mixture has cooled, add vanilla and almond extracts, then whip until light and fluffy.
    • Fold in mascarpone cheese until smooth, then gently fold in the whipped cream. Refrigerate.
  2. Make the Strawberry Jam:
    • Combine diced strawberries, 1/4 cup sugar, water, and lemon juice in a saucepan. Simmer for 15 minutes, adjust sweetness if needed, then strain out the syrup and cool. Continue cooking the remaining berries until thick and jam-like.
  3. Assemble the Tiramisu:
    • Dip ladyfingers in the strawberry syrup and layer them at the bottom of your serving dish.
    • Spread a layer of strawberry jam over the ladyfingers, then cover with a layer of mascarpone cream.
    • Repeat the layers: soaked ladyfingers, strawberry jam, and finish with a generous layer of mascarpone cream.
    • Chill in the fridge overnight, or at least for 4 hours.
  4. Final Touches:
    • Before serving, dust the top with freeze-dried strawberry powder and decorate with fresh strawberries.
