If you think tiramisu has to be made hours ahead, try this fresh, summery version, which comes together in no time. For a non-alcoholic variation, use lemonade concentrate in place of the limoncello. And swap in madeleines for the ladyfingers if you like.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whip cream, sugar, mascarpone, and lemon zest with a mixer until soft peaks barely form.

Step 2

Lay half of the ladyfingers in a 2-qt. glass serving dish or an 8-in. square pan, separating them a bit if needed for fit. Brush ladyfingers with half of limoncello. Dollop and spread with half of cream mixture, then sprinkle with half of mixed berries. Repeat layers.

Very pretty and very tasty. I doubled the recipe because of the recomendations in the review and I used a 2 qt rectangular pan. I would be more generous with the lemoncello but that’s just a personal preferance.

I made this today. Used a substitute recipe for Mascarpone cheese as this is hard to find in my area. The Lemon Barrymiosu is easy to make and presents beautifully in a glass dish. I did use a 7X7 which worked well.. I would recommend this dessert and will use the recipe again.

Agree with prior review, 8x8 dish is a bit too big, so something more on the lines of 7x7 would be better. This was wonderful, easy to make. Soft ladyfingers were a challenge to find. Had to go to an above average grocery store.

Quick and easy! I happened to have limoncello on hand, so yummy!! Perfect light summery dessert! The dish was a little too big, so I would use a smaller dish next time, the creamy mixture wasn't easy to "spread" over the lady fingers, but I made it work!
