These pretty little trifles are a summery deconstructed take on traditional tiramisu.

  • Prep time 1 hour
  • Total time 7 hours & 30 minutes
  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup amaretto
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 2/3 cups icing sugar
  • Dash almond extract
  • 2/3 cups whipping cream (35%)
  • 3 cups ladyfinger cookies (about 12), chopped

Method

In blender, purée together 1 1/4 cups of the raspberries, the granulated sugar and lemon juice. In saucepan, bring raspberry mixture to boil over medium heat; cook, stirring, until mixture is reduced to 3/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Whisk cornstarch with 4 tsp water; stir into raspberry mixture. Bring to boil; cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Transfer to bowl; cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 45 minutes. Stir in 2 tbsp of the amaretto. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.)

In large bowl, beat together mascar­pone, icing sugar and almond extract until fluffy. In separate bowl, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into mascarpone mixture.

In each of six 1-cup glasses, evenly divide ladyfingers, remaining amaretto, raspberry mixture and mascarpone cream; repeat layers. Top with remaining raspberries. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 1 day.)

Makes 10 to 12 servings.
