Jill's tiramisu recipe

As mentioned in my previous post, I borrowed Jill's tiramisu recipe. It was a total hit and I think I'll make it again for our next dinner party or get-together.

Thanks again, Jill! It tastes heavenly and was so easy to make :) It's also a lot less time consuming than my specialty cheesecakes I make for special occasions!

five-minute low-fat tiramisu


1 lb low-fat ricotta (available at most major supermarkets)
1 egg
1-2 oz rum
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup espresso or very strong coffee
1 package savoyardi ("ladyfinger" biscuits, look in Italian groceries, may be in supermarkets)
1/2 tsp. cocoa


Combine first five ingredients in food processor and whiz until smooth (a minute or so). Arrange savoyardi in a single layer in the bottom of a 9x13 pan or casserole. Drizzle half the coffee over them. Spoon half the cheese mixture over top, evenly. Repeat with second layer. Dust top with cocoa. Refrigerate for at least a day.

That looks delicious! I bet it's "zero calories" though, eh? LOL ;P

Glad you liked it, I love it!!

Not zero calories, but far less than regular tiramisu!!!

That looks deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelicious! I'm going to have to make it and since you said it was easy to make I guess I'll surprise my M-I-L since she knws I can't cook! LMFAO!

Gonna try that one. I love easy recipes. You know me the true connoiseur in the kitchen. As if! I cant cook and everyone knows it! I CAN do a nacho recipe! Nachos/tortilas on a baking sheet, browned ground beef, salsa, olives and cheese grated over top, in the oven at 375 for 20 minutse. That's my only specialty unfortunately.
