Tiramisu - A Twist on the Classical
Having checked my plan with several versions of Tiramisu, I forged ahead. And the end result was SO GOOD!
Tiramisu - a Twist on the Classic
2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp Vanilla
1/2 cup STRONG brewed coffee (instant is fine)
2 Tbsp Kahlua (can be omitted)
16 oz cream cheese
large box of Vanilla Pudding mix (sugar free is fine)
1 Package Lady Finger Cookies
Cocoa Powder for dusting
1 - In mixer, pour whipping cream. Add sugar. Beginning on low, start whipping the cream. Beat till whipped. Add vanilla pudding mix. Add cream cheese in small portions. Blend well. Set aside.
2 - Combine coffee and Kahlua. Pour into a shallow dish for dipping Lady Finger cookies.
3 - Dip cookies 2 at a time in coffee. Leave cookies on each side in the coffee for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. They absorb the liquid quickly. Only do 1/2 at this time. Line the bottom of an 8X8 dish with the cookies.
4 - Top with 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture. Save other 1/2 for next layer.
5 - Dip the rest of the cookies in coffee, layering on top of the cream cheese mixture.
6 - Dust with cocoa powder if you would like.
6 - Top with rest of cream cheese mixture.
