Baby Tiramisu

From: EatingWell

If you're a fan of the classic Italian dessert Tiramisu, try this quick, lower-calorie variation the next time you need a dessert in a hurry. Both types of ladyfingers--spongy and crunchy--work well.

Servings: 6 servings
Prep: 15 mins
Total: 45 mins
Rated : 
 by 4 people
1/2 cup  nonfat ricotta cheese, (4 ounces)
2 tablespoons  confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon  vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
12   ladyfingers, (about 1 3/4 ounces)
4 tablespoons  brewed espresso, or strong coffee, divided
2 tablespoons  bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)
1. Combine ricotta, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
2. Place 6 ladyfingers in a 9-by-5-inch (or similar size) loaf pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Spread the ricotta mixture over the ladyfingers. Place another layer of ladyfingers over the ricotta and drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Drizzle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
Tip: To melt chocolate: Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.

If it doesn't use marscapone cheese, then it is NOT tiramisu - IMHO! The smoother texture of marscapone is so much better than ricotta.
