1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup raspberry-flavored liqueur, divided
1 (8-ounce) block fat-free cream cheese, softened
12 cake-style ladyfingers, split
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 cups fresh raspberries
Mint sprigs (optional)


Place powdered sugar, mascarpone cheese, 1 1/2 tablespoons liqueur, and cream cheese in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until well blended.

Brush cut sides of ladyfingers with 2 1/2 tablespoons of liqueur. Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons mascarpone mixture over bottom half of each ladyfinger; cover with tops.

Arrange 3 filled ladyfingers spoke-like on each of 4 dessert plates. Sprinkle evenly with cocoa. Arrange 1/2 cup raspberries over each serving. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
