Strawberry Tiramisu Recipe

I just received this recipe from one of my other friend bloggers.....and I could not resist putting it on here
I love how we can share all this stuff in the internet world...

" The strawberries look so delicious right now so this is a perfect month to try this. If you are like me and aren’t just in love with the taste of coffee, elimanate the espresso and use the same amount of milk and just substitute 2 teas almond extract in place of the liquer. You will then have an almond-flavored tiramisu with the strawberries.
1 pint fresh strawberries
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur
18 ladyfingers
1/3 cup chilled espresso
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1.Cut off the tops of the strawberries and slice the berries. Reserve 2 large whole berries for garnish.
2.In a blender, place 2 cups of strawberries and 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar; blend to puree and set aside.
3.In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, 1/4 cup cream, 1/4 cup sugar, and liqueur; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until thickened.
4.Place 6 ladyfingers on a serving plate and brush each with approximately 1 teaspoon cold espresso coffee. Spread or pipe out 1/2 of the cheese mixture over the ladyfingers, and layer with half of the sliced strawberries.
5.Repeat with the next 6 ladyfingers, espresso, remaining cheese mixture, and sliced strawberries; top with remaining 6 ladyfingers.
6.In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup heavy cream with 2 tablespoons sugar; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until just whipped, approximately 1 minute. Spread cream evenly over top layer of ladyfingers.
7.Dust cocoa over whipped cream, and garnish with 2 reserved strawberries. Pour strawberry puree onto two serving plates. Cut tiramisu in half, and place onto puree."
