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.

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.
