Directions

  1. Measure 1 cup of milk, remove 1/4 cup, and set the rest aside. In a medium bowl, combine the 1/4 cup of milk with the gelatin. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes, then microwave on half power for 1 1/2 minutes, or until the gelatin dissolves. Set this mixture aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  2. In another medium bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, and the sugar. Add the gelatin/ milk mixture and beat until smooth.
  3. Pour the remaining milk into a large mixing bowl. Add one envelope of Dream Whip at a time to the milk and beat after each addition for about 2 minutes until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. While beating the Dream Whip on high speed, add 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture at a time. Mix about 1 minute or until it is well blended and smooth. Set aside while preparing the lady fingers.
  5. Combine the espresso and Kahlua in a large, shallow bowl. One by one, quickly dip each ladyfinger in the espresso.
  6. To assemble the tiramisu, arrange half of the soaked ladyfingers side by side in a 8x8 baking dish. Cover the fingers with half of the cream cheese mixture nd spread carefully with a rubber spatula until smooth and flat. Arrange the remaining ladyfingers on the cheese mixture the same way as the first layer. Cover the cake with the remaining cream cheese mixture.
  7. Dust the top of the tiramisu with cocoa powder. Cover and chill for approximately 3 hours.
