Strawberry Tiramisu
(six servings)

1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons non-fat cream cheese
2 T. powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
3/4 cup thawed frozen light nondairy whipped topping
2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced (reserve six whole berries for garnish)
3 T. granulated sugar
2 T. orange-flavoured liqueur
2 T. orange juice
1 (3-ounce) package ladyfingers, separated (I found them in the Bi-Lo bakery section)

In food processor or blender, combine ricotta, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and orange zest; puree. Transfer to medium bowl; fold in whipped topping.

In same food processor or blender, combine 1 cup strawberries, granulated sugar, liqueur, and orange juice; puree.

Into each of six wine glasses, spoon 1 T. strawberry puree. Top each with 2 ladyfinger halves. Spoon another T. puree over ladyfingers. Top with half of the sliced strawberries,then half of the cheese mixture. Top with the remaining ladyfingers. Spoon on the remaining puree, berries, and cheese mixture.

Cover each glass with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Garnish each serving with 1 strawberry before serving.
