Sweet Tea Dessert

For me Sweet Tea is something that is deeply desired in the summer time so when I found this wonderful dessert that includes sweet tea in it I just had to share it This recipe is from My Recipes.

2 family-size tea bags 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided 2 (8-oz.) containers mascarpone cheese 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract 2 cups whipping cream 2 (3-oz.) packages ladyfingers 1 to 2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa


1. Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a 3-qt. heavy saucepan; add tea bags. Remove from heat; cover and steep 10 minutes.

2. Discard tea bags. Add 1 cup sugar, stirring until dissolved. Bring tea mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 to 22 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 1 cup. Remove mixture from heat, and let cool to room temperature (about 30 minutes).

3. Stir together mascarpone cheese, vanilla bean paste, and remaining 1/2 cup sugar.

4. Beat whipping cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold into cheese mixture.

5. Separate ladyfingers in half. Arrange 24 ladyfinger halves, flat sides up, in the bottom of an 11- x 7-inch baking dish. Drizzle with half of tea mixture. Top with half of cheese mixture. Repeat layers once. Cover and chill 12 hours. Sift cocoa over top just before serving.
