Valentines Desert - Strawberry & Raspberry Tiramisu




This simple desert can be whipped up in minutes the night before Valentines...a great desert for a picnic too.


Raspberry Tiramisu 
200gms of ricotta cheese
1 x 200gm packet of crème fraiche
1 x 400gm tin of raspberries (drained of juice) or 300gms fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon of liquid honey 
8 Italian sponge fingers (savoiardi/ladies fingers)
Liqueur ( I used Crème de Cassis) as I also used in the Oreo 
Truffle recipe.
Fresh Raspberries or strawberries to garnish
2 x (250ml) agee jars/preserving jars with screw lids


Method
Mix together the crème fraiche and ricotta cheese in a bowl until smooth, then stir in the honey.
Break the sponge fingers so that they fit in the bottom of the jar.
Pour 1 dessert spoon of Crème De Cassis liqueur over the sponge fingers
.
Then add a  1” layer of tinned or fresh raspberries and spoon approx 1” of the ricotta/crème fraiche mixture on top of the raspberries. (If using fresh raspberries you can sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over or drizzle some honey but not if you are using the sweeter tinned raspberries.

Add another layer of sponge fingers pouring a dessert spoon of the liqueur over the fingers. (you will have to break up some of the fingers to allow them to fit).

Add another layer of raspberries and then repeat layer of ricotta/crème fraiche mix.
 
End with the final layer of raspberries topped with crème fraiche mix,then cover the top with sliced strawberries.

Screw on the lid and refrigerate overnight (can be kept for 2 days).


Valentine Hint: Tie with a red or pink ribbon, a lovely vintage spoon and a valentine heart tag, adding that extra special touch for your valentine.


Another lovely gift would be a jar of Rocky Road Bark  click "here" for recipe
