Strawberries and basil Tiramisu with ricotta and cream cheese (Tiramisu de frutillas con queso crema y ricotta)











A long, long time ago I wanted to make this Tiramisu, so different but absolutelywonderful. :  Strawberries and basil Tiramisu!
Taking advantage of that I still have a lot of basil (fortunately) I finally did it last weekend. 
The strawberries there are still  here, they are seen until the winter and in the northern hemisphere they are at their peak. The best time.
It's really good. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. #1 what fun.

    Oval works indeed. Basil is always a win as that is good for you. And strawberries too, look at you go in view.

  4. Gloria, This dessert looks great! Its almost strawberry season here and some early ones from our southern states are showing up in the stores. Roadside stands will be next! We recently bought some ricotta cheese to make Italian Easter pies...and now i know what we can do with that extra ricotta. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
