Cranberry-Orange Tiramisu


  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup Marsala wine
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 cartons (8 ounces each) mascarpone cheese
  • 1-1/4 cups cranberry juice
  • 4 teaspoons orange liqueur
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 package (7 ounces) crisp ladyfinger cookies
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking cocoa


  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar and orange juice. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until berries pop and mixture is thickened, about 10 minutes. Cool completely.
  • 2. For custard, heat wine and sugar in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan. Whisk a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolk. Return all to pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until a thermometer reads at least 160° and mixture coats the back of a spoon. Quickly transfer to a small bowl; place bowl in a pan of ice water. Stir 1 minute. In a large bowl, beat cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in custard; set aside.
  • 3. For fruit dip, combine cranberry juice, liqueur and sugar in a shallow bowl. Quickly dip ladyfingers into mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Arrange in a single layer in an 8-in. square dish. Layer with 1 cup custard mixture and cranberry mixture. Top with remaining ladyfingers and remaining custard mixture. Refrigerate, covered, at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • 4. Just before serving, dust with cocoa.
