Combine ½ cup sugar and next 2 ingredients in the top of a double boiler; place over simmering water. Beat at high speed of a mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into cheese mixture.

Gently fold in remaining egg white mixture; set aside.

Combine hot water and next 3 ingredients; stir well. Split the ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Arrange 20 ladyfinger halves, cut sides up, in the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. Drizzle half of the espresso mixture over ladyfinger halves. Spread half of cheese mixture over ladyfinger halves; repeat procedure with the remaining ladyfinger halves, espresso mixture, and cheese mixture. Spread remaining ½ cup whipped topping evenly over cheese mixture; sprinkle with cocoa.

Place one toothpick in each corner and in center of Tiramisu to prevent plastic wrap from sticking to whipped topping; cover with plastic wrap.

Chill 2 hours. Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 [4 x 2-inch] piece).

NOTES : Try freezing Tiramisu for two hours before serving so it will cut cleanly.
