“If you're a fan of the classic Italian dessert tiramisù, try this quick, lower-calorie variation the next time you need a dessert in a hurry. Both types of ladyfingers—spongy and crunchy—work well.”


    • ½ cup nonfat ricotta cheese, (4 ounces)
    • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
    • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 12 ladyfingers, (about 1¾ ounces)
    • 4 tablespoons brewed espresso, or strong coffee, divided
    • 2 tablespoons bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)


  • 1 Combine ricotta, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  • 2 Place 6 ladyfingers in a 9-by-5-inch (or similar size) loaf pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Spread the ricotta mixture over the ladyfingers. Place another layer of ladyfingers over the ricotta and drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Drizzle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
  • Tip: To melt chocolate: Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
