Limoncello Tiramisu Recipe : refreshing Limoncello, Mascarpone, lemon curd and ladyfingers twist for beautiful summer dessert !

Simple mentioning Limoncello Tiramisu Recipe makes our glands work intensively and there is a good reason for this: all together, fresh lemons used for curd, both juice and zest combined with Mascarpone cheese and Limoncello from Scratch promise an extra refreshing dessert that is the best to make during hot summer days but any holiday is great reason to serve it after savoury dishes as well.
I am sure most of you enjoy citrus desserts so keep this one in your pocket to impress the crowd and trust me it will seduce everybody; when writing „everybody“, I mean adults since Limoncello is alcoholic drink and you don’t want to serve this dessert to children.

The best dish to use to assemble the layers together is dessert platter with cover.
If you prefer, you may also use square dish and once tiramisu is done, cover with plastic and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving. The dimensions are optional; what is important is that you have a dish large enough to place 12 ladyfingers on the bottom of it.

I measured two options: first one is 12 x 5 inches platter if you lay 4 ladyfingers in each of three rows. The second option is 8 x 7 inches if you lay 6 ladyfingers in 2 rows.
As you may see on the photos I skipped the third layer of curd on the top of the dessert. The reason to this is skin layer that forms and I wanted to skip this. It is much easier to cut the squares that way.

When cooking the lemon curd, once finished, you get 3 cups of it. It is good to know that you may use lemon curd for so many other desserts.
Besides, you can always have a spoon or two of fresh, lemon curd instead of Nutella, right ?

If doing so, curd, any fruit based, remains fresh up to 10 days in the fridge. It also freezes well up to 3 months.
Also, you may find curd needs straining since it contains grated zest. You may strain it, of course but I don’t do it since it enriches the flavours and adds special, so beautiful „from scratch“ taste.
