Serves: 8 person(s)
Yield: 8 x approx. 1/2 cup servings

Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 0 mins
Extra Time: 6 hrs (or overnight, for refrigeration)

Ingredients:

    285.71 g fat-free ricotta cheese
    228.57 g fat-free cream cheese
    1 Tbsp rum or cognac
    1/4 cup powdered sugar substitute
    1 1/2 cup very strong coffee, cooled
    1 Tbsp Kahlua or Amaretto
    16 ladyfinger sponge finger cookies
    2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa (for dusting)

Directions:

    With electric beaters, beat together the ricotta cheese, cream cheese, rum, and sugar substitute, until light and creamy. Set aside.

    Combine coffee and Kahlua in a large, shallow dish. Quickly dip one side of 8 of the ladyfinger biscuits into the coffee mixture. Lay closely together, coffee side down, over the base of a large, flat-based serving dish.

    Spoon half the cheese mixture evenly over the cookies. Dust with half the cocoa and repeat the layers with the other 8 biscuits, also dipped in the coffee mixture. Finish with a layer of cheese.

    Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least six hours or overnight. Dust with cocoa before serving.

Variations:

    Instead of using a large serving dish, use individual parfait glasses. Line the inside rim of the glasses with dipped biscuits and spoon the cheese mixture into the middle. Dust the top with cocoa.
