This Week’s Recipe: Berry Tiramisu
In a large mixing bowl, mix together with a hand mixer, the whipping cream and sugar until you start to get peaks. In another large mixing bowl, mix together with a hand mixer, the preserves, cheese, vanilla, ½ cup orange juice. Mix until well blended, and lighter in texture.
Gently combine the two mixtures with a spatula. Fold the whipping into the cheese mixture. Set aside.
In a small bowl mix together the 2 ½ cups of orange juice and the liqueur. Put a thin layer of the cheese mixture into a 9 X 13 pan. Dip one-half of all the ladyfingers into the orange juice mixture, one at a time and place them in rows in the pan.
Spread a layer of the cheese mixture over the lady fingers.
Set aside about 1 ½ cups of the nicest of each of the berries. Take the rest of the berries and in a small food processor, chop them. Add the ¼ cup sugar and mix well.
Spread the chopped berries on the middle layer of the cheese in the pan.
Dip the other one-half of the ladyfingers into the orange juice mixture, one at a time and place them in rows going the opposite way in the pan.
Spread a layer of the cheese mixture over the lady fingers. Chill for about 8 hours. Just before serving, slice the strawberries that are left and place them on top. Add the raspberries to the top.
