A light and refreshing take on tiramisu to end you meal. Best made the day before so it has time to soak up all the flavours.
Servings 8

Ingredients
 

  • 4 eggs - separated
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 500 grams mascarpone - room temperature
  • 100 mls limoncello
  • 1 cup lemon curd
  • 24 savoiardi biscuits
  • whipping cream
  • 1 lemon - zest and juice

Instructions
 

  • In a clean, dry bowl, beat the eggwhites till they form stiff peaks.
  • In another bowl, beat the yolks and sugar until the sugar has dissolved (about 3-4 minutes). Add the mascarpone, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon zest and beat until smooth.
  • Gently fold the whites through the mascarpone mixture. Set aside.
  • In a shallow dish, combine the limoncello with 200ml water.
  • Have your serving dish (20cm square) or glasses ready. Gently dip a biscuit in the limoncello mixture for a couple of seconds each side and place in the dish. Once you have done one layer, spread a layer of mascarpone mixture and a thin layer of lemon curd. Repeat for 2 layers for a serving dish and 3-4 for glasses.
  • Top with a thin layer of whipped cream and some lemon zested over

Tips and Variations

To make this alcohol free, use a lemon cordial (like bickfords) instead of the limoncello.
