Eggless Cherry Tiramisu

 Prep: 8 hours  Total Time: 8 hours, 30 minutes  Serves: 6

These individual Cherry Tiramisu Cups are a perfect no-bake summer dessert.

They start with a homemade cherry compote. Then each cup is lined with coffee-soaked ladyfingers.

A mixture of mascarpone cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and cherry juice adds the perfect amount of creaminess. Yum!

  • 1 Lb. cherriespitted (+ more for garnish)

  •  cup sugar

  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 Tablespoons water

For the Cherry Cream:

  • one 14 Oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk

  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese

  • ½ cup unsweetened tart cherry juice

For the Ladyfingers:

  • 12 ladyfingerscut in half

  • 1 cup coffeecooled

  • 1 Oz. dark chocolate



  • In a medium saucepan, combine the cherries and sugar. Bring to a simmer on medium heat. Cook for 25 minutes on medium-low, stirring occasionally.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the water and the cornstarch. Add the cornstarch mixture to the cherries. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the mixture has thickened. Let cool completely in the refrigerator.

  • In a large bowl, combine the cherry juice and the sweetened condensed milk.

  • Add the mascarpone. Using an electric mixer, mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.

  • Divide the cherry compote evenly between 6 dessert cups.

  • Dunk a ladyfinger half quickly into the coffee. Gently press it onto the side of the cup. Repeat so that each cup has 4 ladyfinger halves.

  • Pour the cherry cream to fill each cup. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving or overnight for a firmer consistency.

  • Grate chocolate on top before serving. Enjoy!
