White Chocolate-Strawberry Tiramisu

Here's a twist on a classic dessert that highlights another flavor combo my husband and I love: strawberries and white chocolate. Lighten it up if you'd like—I've had good luck with light nondairy whipped topping and reduced-fat cream cheese. —Anna Ginsberg, Chicago, Illinois

    I have made this recipe three times and the reviews are spectacular!!!! I have omitted the chocolate syrup once, still great! I have also put more than two cups of the filling on the first layer. This is VERY rich and creamy!!

    I made this using a cake recipe for sponge cake..2 layer 9" round cakes sliced horizontal to make a 4 layer. I did not put strawberries in between to make sure cake would not get soggy. I sliced the strawberries and tossed with a little sweetener. As I sliced a piece of cake, I added the strawberries and drizzled with white and chocolate ganache. It was beautiful and delicious. Hard to find lady fingernails why I opted to make a shortcake of my own. Only other change was making a whipped topping out of a cup of cream and some powder sugar. I figured there were enough layers with the cream cheese in it. I will make this again!!

    My husband is allergic to orange juice so what can I brush the lady fingers with

    I have made this a couple of times and gotten rave reviews.I did make some changes the second time as the process of dividing things and doing it by halves is time consuming and not necessary. This recipe also halves well if you need a smaller version.

    Really good recipe, although I have to admit I didn't follow it exactly. I was in a pinch and didn't have time to go to store and hunt for things. Couldn't get lady fingers so I made a sponge cake and cut it up. Also, I forgot the Orange juice, oops. I also did not have mascarpone so I doubled the cream cheese and added some sour cream. I also did not fold any of my whipped cream into the cheese mixture, but I make my whipped cream with instant pudding mix to get different flavors and stabilize it so it doesn't melt. This might help those of you having trouble with "firming it up". I did however stir the strawberries right in, reserving some for garnish. Took it to church and it disappeared! I think this recipe has a lot of flexibility to it, which in my book is what makes a REALLY GOOD recipe. Would definitely like to try it as written though.

    Anyone know if the OJ can be substituted with something alcoholic ? Like Kahlua in regular tiramisu.
