The Queen Of The World's Tiramisu

The Queen Of The World wrote this down for me to post.  It's crazy good.

Makes approximately 8 servings (2” x 2”).  I prefer to double the recipe, and use a 9” x 13” glass baking pan.  It should be prepared the day before serving, or at least in the morning for dessert that same day.  By using Splenda and low or no fat cream cheese, this is a great nearly sugar and fat free, low calorie dessert.
2 pkgs of lady fingers
23 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 8oz cream cheese (tub or bar*, regular or reduced fat)
½ Tsp of unsweetened cocoa
1 ½ cups of whipped cream**

1 cup of very hot water
2 Tbsp sugar (or Splenda)
2 Tbsp instant Espresso granules
4 Tbsp Kahlua
     1.         Combine the powdered sugar and cream cheese in a mixer until well blended.
     2.         Gently fold in 1 cup of whipped cream
     3.         Combine hot water, sugar, Espresso, and Kahlua and stir well
     4.         In a square or rectangular baking pan (preferably glass), place 1 layer of lady fingers, cut side up
     5.         Drizzle the Espresso mixture over the lady fingers
     6.         Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture over top
     7.         Repeat steps 4 and 5
     8.         Top with the remaining ½ cup of whipped topping
     9.         Sprinkle lightly with unsweetened cocoa
  10.         Place toothpicks to hold plastic film off of the whipped topping layer, cover, and refrigerate overnight
** - If using a cream cheese bar, set out ahead of time to allow it to soften before mixing

** - I prefer making my own whipped topping using fresh whipping cream and Splenda to sweeten.

UPDATE 26 December 2017 21:22: Edited to change original "flour" to "powdered sugar".

how much powdered sugar with the cream cheese?

I had a typo - I said "flour" where it should have been powdered sugar. I've updated the post to fix it.
