Let's Make It
Place half the ladyfingers on bottom of 9-inch springform pan, cutting as needed to completely cover bottom of pan. Stand remaining ladyfingers, rounded-sides out and flat-sides in, around edge of pan; set aside.
Sprinkle gelatine over 1/2 cup milk in large bowl; let stand 1 min. Bring remaining milk and 1 cup sugar to boil in saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Pour over gelatine mixture. Add vanilla; stir 5 min. or until gelatine is completely dissolved. Refrigerate 1 hour or until slightly thickened, stirring every 10 to 15 min.
Beat gelatine mixture with mixer until light, fluffy and increased in volume. Add COOL WHIP; beat on low speed until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or until set.
Toss berries with remaining sugar; let stand 10 min., stirring occasionally. Spoon over dessert.
For a more traditional flavor, substitute 2 Tbsp. sweet sherry for the vanilla.
Omit KNOX Gelatine and vanilla. Prepare springform pan with ladyfingers as directed. Place 1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin (or your favorite flavor) in large bowl. Bring 1-1/2 cups milk and 1 cup sugar to boil in saucepan, stirring constantly. Pour over gelatin; stir 2 min. or until gelatin is completely dissolved. Refrigerate as directed in second step. Continue as directed.
Metal bowls cool more quickly than glass bowls. If using a glass bowl, it may take longer to get the desired consistency after refrigerating.
Prepare using COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.
Many charlotte russe recipes call for beaten egg whites to add volume to this no-bake dessert. For food safety, this recipe uses the whipped gelatin mixture to add volume.
