Now you can enjoy tiramisu without the fuss. These parfaits have all the luscious creamy coffee and chocolate flavor of tiramisu in a fraction of the time. If you don’t have parfait glasses, martini glasses are a good choice, but any small dessert dishes will suffice. This recipe is reprinted by permission from Quick-Fix Vegan: Healthy, Homestyle Meals in 30 Minutes or Less  by Robin Robertson © 2011.
Combine the coffee and sugar in a small bowl, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Set aside to cool.
In a blender or food processor, combine the cream cheese, cashew butter, vanilla, and the reserved coffee mixture. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Break a cookie into the bottom of each of 4 parfait glasses or other dessert glasses. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon of Kahlua and top with a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture. Repeat with the layering of the cookies, Kahlua, and cream cheese mixture, until the glasses are full, ending with a layer of the cream cheese mixture, dusted with cocoa powder. Serve at once or refrigerate and serve chilled.
Note: This dessert tastes best (and firms up a bit) if allowed to chill in the refrigerator for an hour or two, but is also perfectly yummy if eaten right away.
