Tiramisu Anacapri

Randy Mayor
Yield 12 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)
This tiramisu was a hit with our Test Kitchens staff, who agreed that it's one of the best they've come across. Ladyfingers can be found in the bakery or the frozen-food section of the supermarket. We used soft ladyfingers, which are made to be split.


  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (1.4-ounce) package sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 (8-ounce) block 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) tub frozen reduced-calorie whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup Kahlúa (coffee-flavored liqueur)
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso or 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 24 cakelike ladyfingers (2 [3-ounce] packages)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, divided

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Cover surface with plastic wrap; chill 30 minutes or until firm.

  2. Remove plastic wrap, and add cream cheese. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until well-blended. Gently fold in whipped topping.

  3. Combine hot water, Kahlúa, and espresso. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Arrange 16 ladyfinger halves, flat sides down, in a trifle bowl or large glass bowl. Drizzle with 1/2 cup Kahlúa mixture. Spread one-third of pudding mixture evenly over ladyfingers; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cocoa. Repeat layers, ending with cocoa. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
