Servings: 12
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 container (8 ounces) frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
1 cup strong coffee, at room temperature
3 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur (optional)
1 1/2 pint baskets strawberries (18 ounces total), stemmed and sliced
24 ladyfingers, split in half
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

In large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until well blended. Gradually fold in whipped topping to blend.

In small bowl, combine coffee and liqueur, if desired. Line an 8 x 8-inch glass baking dish with enough ladyfinger halves to cover bottom of dish; place rounded sides down. If necessary, cut ladyfingers to fit dish. Spoon 1/3-cup coffee mixture evenly over ladyfingers. Top with one-third of the cheese mixture (about one cup) and spread evenly. Layer one-third of the strawberries (1 rounded cup) over cheese. Repeat layers two more times, ending with cheese and reserving remaining strawberries. Cover and refrigerate tiramisu and reserved strawberries at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.

To serve, remove cover; sift cocoa powder over top. Arrange reserved strawberries over cocoa. Serve immediately.

Makes 12 servings.

Eleanor, Ladyfingers are a soft cookie used in making layers in Tiramisu. Shortening is a solid white vegetable or animal fat. Here in the United States, the Crisco brand is the most popular. Hope this information helps.......Diana, Diana's Desserts
