Has it really been that long???? White chocolate and raspberry tiramisu (eggless)

I've been quiet for....oooo.... 7 months!

We welcomed little Amelia Daisy to our family on August 3rd and everything since is a bit of a blur!  I have done almost no sewing (not through lack of inspiration) but finally I'm starting (?) to feel that things are a little more under control.

Having a break from blogging has given me a chance to remember how much I used to enjoy it.  I have great intentions of writing again but we'll see......  in the mean time...... this morning I made a white chocolate and raspberry tiramisu for a family get together.  Here is my recipe:

Blend together 500g marscarpone and 1 cup of cream in a food processor.  Add 100g melted white chocolate and continue blending until smooth.

Press the contents of a 425g tin of raspberries in syrup into a separate bowl (to remove the pesky pips!)  Add 25mL of Absolut Raspberri.  Stir to combine.

Dip savoiardi/ladies finger biscuits (I used a 500g packet) into the raspberry syrup and place the first layer in a large ceramic lasagne dish.

Cover thinly with the cheese mixture.  Sprinkle with fresh (or frozen and thawed raspberries) and grated white chocolate. Add another layer of biscuit and another of cheese.

Refrigerate overnight (at least 12 hours so that the biscuits have time to absorb the moisture and become soft).

Before serving cover with whipped cream, fresh raspberries and grated white chocolate.
