The new fraises garriguettes have arrived in Aix and my goodness are they good!

Some years ago, La Provence published a recipe for a tiramisu with raspberries but I’ve found strawberries are just as delicious, and this is now a firm favourite.  Scroll down for the recipe  which also includes those very French biscuits, Roses de Reims. (more…)

The new fraises garriguettes have arrived in Aix and my goodness are they good!

I found a recipe in last week’s Femina for a tiramisu with raspberries and used it with strawberries instead.  It was delicious.

Tiramisu aux Fraises

250g strawberries, sliced; 250g marscapone; 3 eggs – separated;  75g sugar; lemon zest or a little juice; 10 biscuits ‘Roses de Reims’

  1. Crush the biscuits to fine pink powder and put half in the base of 4 glasses
  2. Put marscapone in a dish and soften it with a fork
  3. Beat egg yolks with sugar and lemon. Mix into the marscapone
  4. Whip the egg whites til firm and fold into the mixture
  5. Now for the layering: add half strawberries to biscuit layer then cover with cream mixture, and repeat. Decorate with a little of the pink biscuit powder and a slice of strawberry.

Femina said this is a recipe for 4. We thought it was very filling and I would do 6 smaller portions. The Roses de Reims biscuits are available in Monoprix. 

Bon Appetit!
