    1. Cut off the tops of the strawberries and slice the berries. Reserve 2 whole berries for the garnish.
    2. In a blender, place a third of the sliced berries and 1 tablespoon of sugar; blend to puree and set aside.
    3. In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, half of the cream, 1 tablespoon of sugar and liqueur; beat with an electric mixer on medium-high until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
    4. Place 6 ladyfingers onto a serving plate, brush each with the cold espresso. Spread 1/2 the cheese mixture over the ladyfingers, and layer with half of the sliced strawberries.
    5. Repeat with the next 6 ladyfingers, espresso, remaining cheese mixture and sliced strawberries; top with remaining 6 lady fingers.
    6. In a small bowl combine remaining cream with 2 tablespoons of sugar; beat with electric mixer on medium-high until just whipped, approx 2 minutes. Spread whipped cream evenly over top layer of ladyfingers. Dust cocoa over whipped cream, garnish with 2 reserved strawberries.
    7. Pour strawberry puree onto two serving plates. Cut tiramisu in half, place onto puree.
