Welcome back. If you are new, this is the Tempt My Tummy Tuesday blog carnival. My twin sister, Lisa, and I co-host the fun. Please post a recipe, kitchen tip, fun food idea, or anything foodie related. From time to time, the carnival will be on my sister's blog. Make sure you visit her blog, as well to post your link.
Well, it is NO secret that I think Paula Deen hung the moon and stars. I just love her down home cooking. It is so much like me. This past week I caught an episode on the Food Network that was fabulous with some really great recipes. I'm going to focus on one though, it is Lime Blueberry Tiramisu. Oh my heavens, it looked so good. I can not wait to make this. I have the ingredients on my next grocery list. I thought you nice ladies would enjoy trying it too.
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 pound mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
- 3 (3-ounce) packages unfilled ladyfingers
- 1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
- 1 (21-ounce) can blueberry pie filling
- Fresh mint leaves, optional
In a large bowl, beat cream with an electric mixer at medium speed until thickened. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Gently stir in cheese until combined; set aside.
Split ladyfingers in half. Line a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish with ladyfingers, cut side up. Brush ladyfingers with limeade concentrate. Spoon half of cheese mixture over ladyfingers. Top with half of blueberry pie filling. Repeat procedure for the next layer with remaining ladyfingers, limeade, cheese mixture, and pie filling. Cover and chill 8 hours. Cut into squares to serve. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.
