Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu

Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu is a bold and no-bake flavorful summery treat: two favorite desserts transformed into one perfect trifle! Are you still looking for the perfect Easter dessert? This is it!

Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu is the ultimate dessert!  Every holiday I deliver outstanding treats to friends and family.  Last year on my father-in-laws ("Pop Pop")'s birthday, I delivered a flop dessert.  Have you ever tried to deliver a cream pie across town when it's 110 degrees out?  Let's just say
it was a humbling experience when he opened the door to a dripping cream topping.  All I could do was bust out laughing.

Luckily Pop Pop has a great sense of humor.  Thanks to this AH-mazing summery tiramisu I am completely redeemed!  I delivered this one for Father's Day (in a cooler) and it was a hit.

Using the basic idea of an Italian dessert, the tiramisu, I layered orange dipped lady fingers, with  fresh homemade cream filling and juicy sweetened strawberries to create the most mouthwatering strawberry dessert I have ever tasted. Then I toppd it with a scrumptious strawberry syrup and then I devoured it.

This dessert completely disappeared in a blink and trust me there will be many more made very soon.  Any dessert you can make without heating up the house may be coming out of my kitchen this summer.

TSRI's Sizzling Summer celebration is just around the corner and this year we are adding a TSRI Traveling Tour in the USA.  We are so excited to share our summer celebration and our travel experiences with you.  What do you have planned for this summer?


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

With only 3 Ingredients you can make this amazing 5 Minute Strawberry Banana Ice Cream. Something you can feel good about eating!



Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu
serves 6

4 egg yolks
¼ cup granulated sugar, plus 1 tablespoon (divided)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup heavy whipping cream
pinch salt
18 lady fingers
2 cups strawberries
¼ cup orange juice
prepared whipped cream
strawberry syrup (this homemade recipe or your favorite store bought)

Slice strawberries and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.  Stir to combine and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine egg yolks and sugar.  Mix on medium until sugar and egg mixture is light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.  Add salt, whipping cream and cream cheese.  Whip until mixture is thick and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour orange juice into a wide bowl.

Once cream is done, layer your dessert in a trifle dish.  Dip ladyfingers, one at a time into orange juice and crumble into the bottom of the trifle dish.  Each dish will get 1 ½ lady fingers on the first layer.  Add a heaping ¼ of cream to each trifle dish.  Divide ½ of strawberries amongst trifle dishes.  Repeat.

Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of strawberry syrup.  Serve and enjoy.

COOK'S NOTE:  If you want to 'spice' things up a bit, you can swap Grand Marnier orange liqueur for the orange juice.

    One thing; isn't a trifle usually placed in layers? Is the picture just the remnants of scooping the trifle in to the cup from a larger bowl?
    I could just drool all over that picture, it really deserves to be published.

    1. Yes, this is layered into small trifle dishes. Enjoy!

  5. What if we don't want egg yolks in it????

  6. What a great twist on strawberry shortbread. This is going on my to do list.
