Strawberries Tiramisù

At GUADEC John (J5) Palmieri announced the GNOME Cookbook project, this delicious dessert is my first contribution to the project, I hope you like it! The Italian translation of the recipe is on my cooking blog.


  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) sugar
  • 1 pound (500 g) mascarpone cheese
  • salt
  • 1 3/4 lbs. (800 g) strawberries
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbs. rum
  • 3/4 lbs. (340 g) savoiardi (lady fingers)


Update: I have an updated version of this recipe on my cooking blog.

Whisk the yolks with half of the sugar making a cream, then add mascarpone cheese and rum. In a bowl whip the egg whites to hard peaks with a pinch of salt and add them to the mascarpone cream.

Wash the strawberries in very cold water and cut off the tops. Place in a blender 1 lb. strawberries, the lemon juice and the remaining sugar, and blend to puree.

Arrange a layer of savoiardi dipped in the juice in a serving dish and spread with some cream. Repeat layering with remaining savoiardi and cream.

Slice remaining strawberries and garnish the tiramisù with them.

Place in the refrigerator for some hours so the savoiardi can soften and absorb the juice.

This looks very nice, I will definitely try it.

Good god. That looks beautiful. Now I’m hungry. SUCH CRUELTY!

[…] Anyway, a couple of the recipes already planned for the book have caught my eye, and I’m planning on trying them out as soon as possible, for example, the Strawberries Tiramisù by Marco Barisione (its ok, it doesn’t actually include coffee – which sounds weird to me, but I’ll give it a shot ).
