Recipe by Wishing

My daughters gave me a copy of Rachel Ray's 30 Minute Meals 2 Cookbook and of course the first thing I tried was a dessert! Her recipe actually called for double the rum quantity but I found it way too strong so I have halved that measurement.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Separate 8 ladyfingers on work area.
  2. Using a pastry brush, paint the ladyfingers with the rum as mentioned, I have halved this original qty- her recipe calls for 3 oz.
  3. Line small glass dessert cups with the ladyfingers.
  4. Top with heaping spoonfuls of prepared vanilla instant pudding (about 1/2 cup) per dish.
  5. Sprinkle sliced strawberries with sugar and toss to coat.
  6. Top the dessert cups with the strawberries and a dollup of coolwhip/heavy cream and sprinkle with almonds.
  7. Serve, or chill until dessert time.
  8. Enjoy!
