I am really enjoying my review copy of Dolci: Italy's Sweets, (You can read my original review here), so much so I decided to share with you another recipe I made from this awesome cookbook put out by Abrams publishing. It's called Summertime Tiramisu and takes just seconds to put together. It calls for peach jam but you can substitute just about any flavor. I went with strawberry and even added some fresh fruit to the mix. The results were yummy!
Just a reminder this is a Virtual Potluck post and there's a chance for you to win a copy of this book or one of the other books being blogged about this week. Head over to Cookistry for a full list of bloggers and book giveaways.
Strawberry Summer Tiramisu

In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, sugar and cinnamon and beat with a fork until smooth. Set aside.
In a shallow bowl, combine the jam with the warm water and the liqueur. Dip the lady fingers, a few at a time, into the mixture until they are nicely moistened. Place 6 on a serving plate, side by side, and spoon some ricotta mixture over them. Top with sliced strawberries. Repeat. finish with a layer of ricotta cheese and a fanned berry.
