“This is not authentic, but it is a fast, easy to make and very tasty version of Venice's favorite cheesecake. It comes from the Magic of Jell-O. The name means "pick me up". Also try substituting vanilla wafers for the lady fingers. If you do, reduce the coffee to 1/2 cup because the wafers won't absorb the liquid as well.”

  3. Cover with plastic wrap and chill 1 hour.
  4. Fold in whipped topping.
  5. In a small shallow dish, stir sugar into coffee and dip each ladyfinger in for only 4-5 seconds (letting them soak too long will make them fall apart).

  7. Cover tightly and chill for 4 hours or overnight.
