Bittersweet Blueberry-Lime Tiramisu

I love books that are emotional--sweet one moment and tear-jerking the next.  Linger by Maggie Stiefvater is a roller-coaster ride of bitter and sweet.  So here you have a lovely lime and blueberry dessert.  It's all summery too and Linger is played out as spring is giving way to the warmer season.  Yum, you will love this one!

Bittersweet Blueberry-Lime Tiramisu

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
8 oz. Marscarpone cheese, at room temperature(I just used 16 oz. of cream cheese instead of adding Marscarpone).
1 1/2 pkgs.  Loaf-style angel food cake
1 6 oz. can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 21 oz can blueberry pie filling(I made my own)

Beat cream  until it starts to thicken.  Gradually add powdered sugar until soft peaks form.  Gently stir in cheeses until combined.  Slice angel food cake into 1/2 inch slices.  LIne a 9x13x2 in pan with one half of the cake slices.  Brush with one half of the limeade concentrate.  Spoon half of cheese mix on top and smooth evenly.  Top with half of blueberry pie filling.  Reapeat the layers.  Cover and chill 8 hours(it's yummy immediately, but it sets up nicely when chilled).  Cut into squares and serve to 12 lucky people.
