Fluffy, light and refreshing, this easy limoncello tiramisu recipe tastes like spring and summer. It’s the perfect dessert recipe to serve for Mother’s Day! (She’ll love it.)

I used an 11×7-inch casserole dish, but next time will use a trifle bowl for that wow factor. This lemon tiramisu recipe is a keeper.
