  1. In a medium bowl, combine raspberries with 6 tablespoons sugar. Crush a few of the berries; set aside. In a small bowl, dissolve 1 cup sugar in 1/3 cup hot water. When dissolved, stir in Grand Marnier and cold water; set aside.
  2. Beat egg yolks with 6 tablespoons sugar until ribbons form, about 5 minutes. mix in mascarpone until smooth. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, with clean beaters, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 6 tablespoons sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the mascarpone mixture, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.
  3. Brush ladyfingers on both sides with Grand Marnier syrup. Place on bottom and sides of a 9x13 inch glass baking dish. Spoon raspberries evenly over ladyfingers. Spread 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture over the raspberries. Sprinkle chocolate shavings over cream, then cover with the remaining cream mixture. Top with toasted almonds. Cover with plastic, and refrigerate overnight.

An excellent dessert - well received by all who tried it. I followed the suggestion to use additional raspberries, combining a package of unsweetened berries with one in a light syrup, an d then eliminated the 6 T sugar. In the future, I would also try the suggestion from another tiramisu recipe to substitute mascarpone for 2pkgs cream cheese blended with 1/2 c heavy cream and 5 T sour cream, as the mascarpone is quite expensive for the minimal flavour it imparts. As I was not cooking at home, I had no pastry brush available and simply dipped the coookies in the Grand Marnier syrup which seemed to work quite well. I also used fresh raspberry as a garnish and additional chocolate curls. Yummy!

I liked the idea of the flavors in this tiramisu, but it was way too soggy for me. I used thawed frozen raspberries, so I might not have drained them enough... so if you use frozen, make sure not to use the juice!

Awesome...or as my little girl says "It's like heaven in my mouth!" Following other tips, I did reduce amount of sugar in berries, plus doubled the amount (works best with fresh berries). I too increased the chocolate curls as I didn't really taste the chocolate the first time I made this. Substituted Blackberry Brandy I had in house for the Grand Marnier I didn't have handy. Worked fine. The marscapone substitute another reader suggested was outrageous, even better than true marscapone! This recipe is easy and delicious! Thanks Den!!

An absolutely delicious spin on traditional tiramisú, ideal for summer; I made 1 1/2 times the amount for a party, and it disappeared. I used the best raspberries I could lay my hands on, and they lifted the dessert into another realm altogether. One hint though? As much as I love chocolate, in my opinion, this doesn't need it. And it was nothing to do with the quality of the chocolate I used - I just think it adds nothing to it, and the next times I make it will be without it. JSPAHN, maybe you haven't had tiramisú before, because it's quite clearly not baked; the way I see it, you're going to die anyway from all that creamy richness so you might as well not worry, but if the thought of uncooked eggs makes you nervous, there are plenty of recipes out there for tiramisú featuring a cooked sabayon (egg yolk mixture) and Italian or Swiss (ie. cooked) meringue. Just be forewarned that you will be sacrificing some creaminess.

This twist on a classic is a very delicate dessert. I changed it a very little bit, by layering 1 layer of ladyfingers soaked in the syrup, 1 layer of the mascarpone mixture, 1/2 of the fruit (I used thawed frozen mixed berries), 1 more layer of soaked ladyfingers, remaining berries and remaining mascarpone mixture. I dusted this all with cocoa powder and sprinkled a little chopped caramelized peanuts. Delicious, but I'll give a try to the recipe as described in the recipe. From coming back from shopping to cleaning dishes, it only took 20 minutes! Oh, and, yes, it yields more than 6 servings (I'd say 8-10).

delicious. this recipe makes alot.

This was very tasty indeed. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because instead of using all those eggs I will use whipping cream added to the cheese. I also used coffee liqour because that is what I had & I didn't add water and sugar to it. I also used fresh berries and 'less' sugar raspberry jam mashed up. I also grated a little chocolate on top, which it really didn't need and added no nuts. Will be making this again!

Superb! Absolutely delicious! I made 1.5 times the recipe for a dinner party but found the Grand Marnier syrup did not need to be increased. Still had plenty for the increased number of Ladyfingers. Got rave reviews - Thanks Den!
