Easy Tiramisu


My Tiramisu just before spreading on the layer of cream cheese
Martha Stewart’s version of Tiramisu really is as easy as 1–2–3!


  • 3 tablespoons instant espresso powder

(Note: IF you cannot find instant espresso powder, use instant coffee)

  • 1 bar (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) soft ladyfingers

(Note: IF you cannot find ladyfingers, use one of those frozen Sara Lee pound cakes)

  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting


  1. In a medium bowl, mix espresso powder with 3 tablespoons boiling water until dissolved. Add 1 1/2 cups cold water; set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese with heavy cream and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Spread a few tablespoons of cream-cheese mixture in the bottom of a 2-quart serving dish. Separate ladyfingers. One by one, dip a third of ladyfingers in espresso, then arrange in bottom of dish. Spread with a third of cream-cheese mixture. Repeat twice with remaining ladyfingers, espresso, and cream-cheese mixture (can be refrigerated, covered, up to 1 day).
  4. Dust with cocoa just before serving.
