Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, make the pudding according to package instructions with the milk listed in the recipe. If for some reason your recipe calls for a different measurement, use that. Set aside to thicken up.
  • While the pudding is setting up, dip the top and bottom of each ladyfinger in the coffee liqueur and arrange in rows in a 7x11-inch pan until the bottom is covered in one layer.
  • Add the Mascarpone cheese to the pudding mixture and use a hand mixer to whip them together until smooth. Spread half of the pudding mixture out over the top of the ladyfinger mixture in the pan making sure to cover evenly.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add half of the whipped cream mixture to the top of the pudding layer in the pan, spreading out evenly. 
  • Layer with another layer of coffee liqueur soaked ladyfinger cookies, then the remaining half of the pudding mixture and then the remaining whipped cream, leveling out the top layer.
  • Dust the top of the whipped cream with cocoa powder and place the whole pan in the refrigerator to set for at least 6 hours. 
  • After the dish has set, use a large, sharp knife to cut the dessert into squares, serve with a strawberry, if desired.
