My family's favorite dessert is tiramisu, an Italian dessert composed of ladyfingers soaked with expresso and a light-as-air cream cheese topping! Here's the recipe that I use:
1 pkg. ladyfinger cookies (you can substiute pound cake slices if you can't find ladyfingers)
1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz.), softened
2 cups whipped cream ( I like to whip and sweeten my own)
1 cup strong brewed expresso
cocoa powder, for garnish
Arrange ladyfingers in the bottom of a glass dish (you may need to break them to fit); soak with the expresso. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, whip cream cheese and whipped cream together on high until light and airy; you may choose to add more sugar at this time if you want it really sweet. Top the ladyfingers with the cream cheese mixture; dust with cocoa powder and refridgerate at least two hours before serving.
