Recipe: The Strawberry Blessing Best of 2013 – Number 4

Summary: It was glorious. Angels sang. I think there were even harps. As far as I’m concerned you can call it whatever you like. I call it good.

Ingredients

    • 1 cup strawberry jam
    • 1/2 cup warm water
    • 1/3 cup orange juice
    • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier, plus one tablespoon extra
    • 1-1/4 pounds mascarpone, at room temperature
    • 1-1/3 cups whipping cream (35%)
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • ladyfingers or Savoiardi (you’ll need about 50)
    • 1-1/2 to 2 pounds strawberries, washed, dried and sliced
    • 2 tablespoons lemon zest

Quick notes

I would recommend chilling for 24 hours. Chilling for 12 hours will do, but if you can hold off devouring this dessert, the extra time will really help it set.
