Ingredients

1
package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2
cup powdered sugar
2
tablespoons light rum or 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1
cup whipping (heavy) cream
1
package (3 ounces) ladyfingers, (12 ladyfingers)
1/2
cup cold prepared espresso or strong coffee
2
teaspoons baking cocoa

Directions

  • 1 Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in rum on low speed; set aside.
  • 2 Beat whipping cream in chilled small bowl on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold into cream cheese mixture.
  • 3 Split ladyfingers horizontally in half. Arrange half of the ladyfingers, cut sides up, on bottom of ungreased square pan, 8x8x2 inches, or round pan, 9x1 1/2 inches. Drizzle 1/4 cup of the espresso over ladyfingers. Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over ladyfingers.
  • 4 Arrange remaining ladyfingers, cut sides up, on cream cheese mixture. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup espresso. Spread with remaining cream cheese mixture.

Expert Tips

For 9 grams of fat and 170 calories per serving, substitute reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel) for the regular cream cheese. Substitute 2 cups frozen (thawed) reduced-fat whipped topping for the beaten whipping cream.

“Carry me up” is the translation for tiramisu, pronounced tir-ruh-mee-SOO. This rich Italian dessert is usually made with mascarpone, a buttery rich, slightly sweet and smooth Italian cream cheese.

Look for mascarpone in the cheese case in large supermarkets, specialty cheese shops or gourmet food stores.
