  • Buy the soft lady fingers, frozen sweetened strawberries, 8 ounces of mascarpone and some heavy whipping cream. Thaw and puree the frozen strawberries, adding a teaspoon or so of lemon juice to brighten the flavor. In your mixer, whip the mascarpone with some vanilla and a bit of sugar and some orange liqueur, probably 2-3 tbsp. When it's soft and creamy, remove to another bowl and use the mixer to whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Fold the mascarpone into the whipping cream. Dip the lady fingers into the strawberry puree and lay into the bottom of a glass dish, either a casserole or a trifle dish. Add a layer of the mascarpone, then repeat until you've used it all, ending with the mascarpone cream. Chill, then top with shaved white chocolate and whipped cream.
