3 Tbsp. instant espresso powder
3 Tbsp. boiling water
1 package (8 oz) reduced-fat cream cheese
3/4 c. heavy cream
1/3 c. sugar
2 packages (3oz each) soft ladyfingers
Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting

In a medium heat-proof bowl, mix the espresso powder with the boiling water until dissolved. Add 1 1/2 c. cold water;set aside.

With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese with the heavy cream and sugar until light and fluffy.

Spread a few Tbsp. of the cream-cheese mixture in the bottom of a 2-quart serving dish. Seperate the ladyfingers. One by one, dip a third of the ladyfingers in the espresso, then arrange in the bottom of the serving dish. Spread with a third of the cream-cheese mixture. Repeat twice with the remaining ladyfingers, espresso and cream-cheese mixture. The tiramisu can be refrigerated, covered for up to 1 day.

Dust with cocoa powder just before serving

A simple and tasty version of tiramisu. The recipe is from "Great Food Fast" by Everyday Food. If you're a tiramisu lover like me you've gotta try this one!

Great easy recipe, thanks for sharing! I jazzed mine up with a little Kahlua. So good.
