Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

No-Cook Berry Tiramisu

This cool summer dessert is quick and easy to make…it can be on your table in less than 10 minutes. With no cooking involved it will also help to keep your kitchen cool. It is also great made in advance which makes it even easier on the host or hostess. We preferred raspberries with our tiramisu, but you can use any summer berries or fruit. For a non-alcoholic dessert, use a coffee flavored syrup instead of the liqueur and reduce the sugar to 2/3 cup.

1 cup softened mascarpone cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup coffee liqueur
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
36 ladyfinger cookies
1 pint washed raspberries, divided
1/4 cup grated bittersweet chocolate
1 cup sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping

Beat the mascarpone, powdered sugar, sour cream, coffee liqueur, and vanilla until smooth. Set the mixture aside. Crush or finely chop the ladyfinger cookies and set aside. Set aside 6 raspberries for a garnish. Using eight ounce dessert glasses or large goblets, layer the ingredients evenly in each glass, starting with half of the mascarpone mixture, then half the cookies, then half the raspberries, then the remaining mascarpone mixture, the remaining cookie crumbs, and the rest of the raspberries. Top with the sweetened whipped cream, grated chocolate, and reserved raspberries. Serve immediately, or chill for up to 8 hours before serving.

Makes 6 servings.
