Lemon Tiramisu


  • 1 carton (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 2/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 24 crisp ladyfinger cookies
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest


  • 1. Beat first five ingredients on medium speed until blended, 2-3 minutes (do not overbeat).
  • 2. Whisk lemon juice and sugar in a shallow bowl until sugar is dissolved. Quickly dip eight ladyfingers into lemon juice, allowing excess to drip off; place in a single layer in an 8-in. square dish. Spread a third of the mascarpone mixture over top. Repeat layers twice.
  • 3. Sprinkle with lemon zest. Refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours before serving.

    Wayyy too lemony! What made it bad was dipping ladyfingers in lemon juice (and sugar), I would definitely skip that step.

    I feel like we owe this recipe some liquor......dip ladyfingers in lemoncello? Then we can rival tiramisu ;)
