Simple Tiramisu Recipe

16 ladyfingers
2/3 cup strong brewed coffee, room temperature
1/3 cup maple syrup

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting
Or white chocolate twists

Split ladyfingers lengthwise and use them to line the bottom and sides of an 8x8 inch dish. Stir together coffee and 1/3 cup maple syrup until smooth. Spoon mixture over ladyfingers.
In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, sour cream and 1/2 cup maple syrup until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread mixture over soaked ladyfingers. Cover and chill 15 minutes.
Dust with sifted cocoa or strips of white chocolate just before serving.
