Nanny tells us this is not an overly sweet dessert, but that is how her family likes it.

You can, of course, add some powdered sugar to the Marscapone cheese and or cool whip if you have a particularly sweet tooth. The choice is yours!

This is easy to make, involves no baking and is best served after being chilled overnight, so great as a make-ahead dessert too!

This strawberry tiramisu is a great dessert to take to a party or potluck.

It's easily transported so long as you keep it in the original dish used to prepare.

Simply cover with plastic wrap, keep chilled and take along to your gathering.

It will go fast so you will probably need to double up the recipe! 

So without further ado, let's see how to make Nanny's strawberry tiramisu recipe. Recipe by Pat Milton
