Yield: 12 servings
Source: Cooking Light Website
Comments from a CA Kitchen: Really exceptional combination!! I always double the "filling" to have higher layers.

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup ground coffee beans
1-3/4 cups cold water
1/4 cup Kahlua (coffee-flavored liqueur), divided
1/2 cup (3-1/2 ounces) mascarpone cheese
1 (8-ounce) block fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
24 ladyfingers (2 (3-ounce) packages)
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa, divided

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Assemble drip coffeemaker according to manufacturer's directions. Place the ground coffee in the coffee filter or filter basket. Add cold water to coffee maker and brew to make 1-1/2 cups. Combine the brewed coffee and 2 tablespoons Kahlua in a shallow dish, and cool.
  2. Combine cheeses in a large bowl. Beat at high speed of a mixer until smooth. Add sugars and 2 tablespoons Kahlua, and beat until well-blended.
  3. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise.
  4. Quickly dip 24 ladyfinger halves, flat sides down, into coffee mixture; place, dipped sides down, in the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish, slightly overlapping ladyfinger halves. Spread half of cheese mixture over ladyfingers; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon cocoa. Repeat procedure with remaining ladyfinger halves, coffee mixture, cheese mixture, and 1 teaspoon cocoa.
  5. Place 1 toothpick in each corner and 1 in the center of tiramisu (to prevent plastic wrap from sticking to cheese mixture); cover with plastic wrap. Chill 2 hours.
