  • 3 tablespoons seedless raspberry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon orange liqueur

  • Garnish: fresh mint sprigs


  1. Microwave raspberry preserves in a small microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 20 seconds. Stir in liqueur.
  2. Beat cream cheese and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy (about 1 minute).
  3. Beat heavy cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold into cream cheese mixture. Spoon into a zip-top plastic bag. (Do not seal.) Snip 1 corner of bag with scissors to make a hole (about 1/2 inch in diameter).
  4. Press 1 ladyfinger half onto bottom of 1 (1 1/2-oz.) shot glass. Repeat procedure with 7 more shot glasses. Drizzle about 1/2 tsp. raspberry mixture into each glass. Pipe a small amount of cream cheese mixture evenly into each glass. Repeat procedure with remaining ladyfingers, raspberry mixture, and cream cheese mixture. Top each glass with 1 raspberry. Cover and chill 2 hours. Garnish, if desired.

    I would LOVE more recipes for the mini shot glass desserts!!!!

  2. admin says:

    You got it! We’ll start working on them and get them posted, thanks Shara! 🙂

  3. When you said “raspberry tiramisu”, I took a double-take thinking there might be coffee involved with raspberry, but then I noticed the orange liqueur!

    I’m guessing mascarpone would be a good substitution instead of plain Philly or anything?

    Also, beautiful photographs!

    Yes, mascarpone would be a great addition to the recipe! 🙂
