I found this when I was looking for a nice dessert to serve company. It looks pretty and isn't that hard to put together. It is best when made the day before.

Very good version of Tiamisu. I made this the night before and let it firm up in the frig and brought it to the lake the next day. I omitted the brandy and substituted rum flavored extract because 2 in my group are recovering alcoholics. The white chocolate and strawberries were a magnificent combo...this is the perfect summer dessert when you want to impress your guests!

This dessert turned out delicious and was such a beautiful finish to the meal. The chocolate pairs perfectly with the strawberries, and is such a nice change of pace from the standard tiramisu! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I planned a whole dairy meal just around this recipe so we could have this for dessert! We're coming to the end of strawberry season here and I was able to find some gorgeous sweet berries, probably the last we'll have until the season starts up again in the winter. Didn't change a thing with the exception that I used white chocolate liqueur instead of the brandy for a little extra oomph! Definitely a dessert to make if you want to impress someone, even if that someone is yourself!
