Made in collaboration with Catherine Fulvio. Crumbled up lady fingers are drizzled in sweet coffee syrup and layered with a creamy filling and juicy strawberries to make this fruity twist on the classic Italian dessert. This no bake dessert-in-a-jar takes just minutes to make and is perfect served at a barbecue or summer picnic.
