1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup granulated sugar

12-ounces cream cheese, softened

One 8-ounce jar prepared lemon curd

2 cups heavy cream

22 hard ladyfinger cookies

3 cups mixed raspberries and sliced strawberries

Powdered sugar, for garnish

Whipped cream, for serving


  1. In a small measuring cup, mix the lemon juice with the sugar and 1/4 cup water until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  2. Place the cream cheese, lemon curd and heavy cream in a food processor and process until smooth and a bit fluffy.
  3. To assemble the tiramisu, place half the ladyfingers in the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish, breaking a few to fit, and drizzle with half of the lemon syrup. Top with half the lemon cream and 1 cup mixed berries. Repeat the layers, using the remaining ladyfingers, syrup and lemon cream.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 8 hours or overnight. Before serving, top with the remaining 2 cups of berries and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with whipped cream on the side.
