Because I love tiramisu, I came up with this deliciously refreshing twist on the traditional coffee-flavored Italian dessert. Fresh softened berries star with crisp ladyfinger cookies and mascarpone cheese. Serve it from a glass bowl or in clear dishes to show off the luscious layers. —Najmussahar Ahmed, Ypsilanti, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh raspberries
  • 3 cups fresh blackberries
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1-1/3 cups sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cartons (8 ounces each) mascarpone cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 packages (7 ounces each) crisp ladyfinger cookies
  • Additional fresh berries, optional

Directions

  1. Place berries in a large bowl. Mix 1/3 cup sugar, orange zest and orange juice; toss gently with berries. Refrigerate, covered, 45 minutes.
  2. Beat cream until soft peaks form. In another bowl, mix mascarpone cheese, vanilla and remaining sugar. Fold in whipped cream, a third at a time.
  3. Drain berries over a shallow bowl, reserving juices. Dip ladyfingers in reserved juices, allowing excess to drip off; arrange in a single layer on bottom of a 13x9-in. dish. Layer with half the berries and half the mascarpone mixture; repeat layers, starting with ladyfingers.
  4. Refrigerate, covered, overnight. If desired, top with additional berries before serving.
