This lovely, torte from Barbara Joyner of Franklin, Virginia features lady fingers, a creamy filling and a crushed pineapple topping that would be great for the holidays. “It's a special treat for my large family, and a must at Christmas and Easter,” she relates.
- 1 package (8 ounces) fat-free cream cheese
- 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed
- 3 packages (3 ounces each) ladyfingers, split
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
- In a large bowl, beat the cream cheeses, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Arrange ladyfingers on the bottom and around the edge of an ungreased 9-in. springform pan. Spread bottom layer evenly with half of cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining ladyfingers (ladyfingers may overlap); spread with remaining filling. Cover and refrigerate.
- In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in pineapple. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Cool to room temperature; gently spread over torte. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set. Remove sides of pan. Yield: 12 servings.
