I know, I know….lots of Nilla Wafer dishes. That’s what the theme of the party was and my only Nilla wafer recipe that I make is the banana pudding, so I had to go onto the Nabisco website and try some out.
This Tiramisu was super easy and tasted okay. I’d make it again. However, even my 6yo daughter said that this isn’t as good as real Tiramisu (she has grown up tastes, doesn’t she). So, if you are looking for a true Tiramisu, this probably isn’t going to be it. That said, it was good and worthy of mentioning here.
Easy NILLA Tiramisu
|1 tbsp. instant coffee|
|2 tbsp. hot water|
|1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened|
|1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted|
|1 tub (8 oz.) whipped topping, thawed|
|32 NILLA Wafers|
|1 cup fresh raspberries|
|1/2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder|
|Dissolve coffee granules in hot water. Gradually add to cream cheese in medium bowl, beating with whisk until blended. Add sugar; mix well. Stir in the whipped topping.|
|Place 16 of the wafers on bottom of 8-inch square dish; cover with half of the whipped topping mixture. Repeat layers; cover. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.|
|Top with raspberries just before serving. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and grated chocolate. Store leftovers in refrigerator.|

Hi, Wendy. I can’t get lady fingers locally so I will give this a shot. (I was curious if there was a Nilla Wafer version and your recipe popped up very high in the search results. Can’t wait to see more of your website!) Anyway, this definitely looks like a nice summertime dessert, even if it’s not traditional tiramisu. Thank you!

Thanks Lisa. I hope you like it. It’s a pretty simple recipe and gives you that Tiramisu fix when you can’t find the ladyfingers. w-
Wendy, I really love tiramisu but I find it can be time-consuming. I still think this looks delicious but I understand what you're saying about not being the "real" thing. I would definitely make it though. Fast and easy!!!
