My Not-So Fattening Lemon Raspberry Tiramisu

Norma DeRemer


I found this recipe years ago and dicided to make it with fat-free ingredients instead and it turned out great. My family and friends couldn't tell the difference and of couse I didn't tell them either. LOL Turned out to be a wonderful cool dessert during warm weather or any other time of the year.
