Strawberry Mousse Ladyfingers

 

Type: Dessert

Serves: 8

 

Ingredients

  • 3 (3-ounce) packages soft split ladyfingers
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • ½ cup minced fresh strawberries
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 (10.75-ounce) all-butter pound cake
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • Garnish: 8 whole strawberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place ladyfingers on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes, or until very lightly toasted. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, whipped topping, minced strawberries, confectioners’ sugar, and sour cream. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Slice pound cake lengthwise into long (1/4-inch-thick) slices. Using a 2½-inch round cutter, cut 8 circles of cake. Set aside. Cut one rounded end off ladyfingers so that they measure 2¼ inches long.
  4. To assemble desserts, place a cake round in the center of a 3½-inch ring mold. Brush inside surfaces of ladyfingers lightly with orange juice. Stand rounded end up inside ring mold around cake circle. Spoon about ⅓ cup mousse into mold. Repeat with remaining cake rounds, ladyfingers, orange juice, and mousse. Refrigerate until ready to serve. To serve, remove ring mold, and tie with a pretty ribbon. Garnish each with a whole strawberry.
