White Grapefruit Tiramisù….Welcome Summer!

TiramisuAlPompelmo_BLAD blog - 064

I’m welcoming the summer 2017 with a tangy version of the classic Tiramisù. This recipe works great with any citrus fruits (grapefruits, lemons, limes) or with Limoncello, the lemon liqueur originated from Sorrento (Almafi coast). This dessert is a great idea for entertaining your guests on a warm summer night and remember, it will taste even better if prepared one day ahead.

Have a boost of vitamin C and a splash of summer with the white grapefruit Tiramisù.

Buon Appetito!

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 cup water

7 ounces savoiardi (Italian ladyfingers)

 

DIRECTIONS

Wash, dry and grate half of the peel of the white grapefruit, then squeeze out the juice of the whole grapefruit. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl beat the egg yolks and 5 tablespoons of sugar with a hand mixer until creamy.

Add the mascarpone cheese and continue to beat until incorporated.

Spoon the bottom of a baking dish with a little amount of the mascarpone cream.

Dip briefly the ladyfingers (one at the time) into the grapefruit and water mixture, then squeeze out the excess of liquid.

Make a layer of dipped ladyfingers into the baking dish then spoon evenly half of the mascarpone cream over the ladyfingers.

Make another layer of dipped ladyfingers, spoon evenly the remaining mascarpone cream over the ladyfingers.

Cover the grapefruit tiramisu’ tightly with cling wrap and allow to rest in the fridge at least 2 hours before serving.
