Lemon Tiramisu

          Does it sound weird...actually this is one of my own recipes. I tried experimenting with lemon as I am too fond of any lemon dessert. A very simple and easy to follow recipe.

You will need:

2 sachets of Dream whip powder ( 3 cups of sweetened whipping cream) 
1 cup cold milk
3 tbsp condensed milk (1 mini tin)
1 tin of nestle cream
200 gms Mascarpone Cheese
1/2 tsp lemon essence
1 cup lemonade (lemon juice+water+sugar)

Pinch of yellow colour
1 tsp lemon rind(lemon peel grated)
1 big packet of vicenzi finger biscuits
Chocolate Shavings for garnishing

  1. In a large mixing bowl whip up the dream whip powder with milk until peaks are formed and keep it in the fridge. Take 1 cup of whipped cream and stuff into a piping bag. Reserve the remaining cream.
  2. In another mixing bowl with an electric beater, blend together cheese, condensed milk, cream, lemon essence,colour and lemon rind.
  3. Without using the electric beater just fold in the whipped cream into the cheese mixture using a spoon.
  4. Take the serving dish, soak each biscuit into the lemonade and place next to each other.
  5. Pour over half of cheese mixture over the biscuits.
  6. Repeat another layer of soaked biscuits and rest of the cheese mixture over it.
  7. Finally garnish with chocolate shavings and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hrs until completely set.
  8. Serve chilled.
Preparation time: 15 min
Refrigeration  time : 3 hrs
