Strawberry Fudge Torte

Looking for something simple to make, but so rich and sinful that you're guilt ridden for days?  Well, this is it.  Rich doesn't even begin to describe this dessert.  It was so sweet and fabulous.  Mine actually served closer to 15 because all you need is a tiny piece to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Between the chocolate chip cookie crust, the hot fudge filling and cream cheese topping, all I can say is "WOW"!  You've got to try this!

Strawberry Fudge Torte
Serves 12

1 (16 1/2 oz.) tube refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 (6 oz.) carton strawberry yogurt
1/2 cup spreadable strawberry cream cheese
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. almond extract
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups whipped topping
1 cup hot fudge, warmed, divided
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Let the dough stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to soften.  Press into an ungreased 9 inch springform pan.  Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool completely.

In a small bowl, beat the yogurt, cream cheese, lemon juice and extract until smooth.  Beat in powdered sugar.  Fold in whipped topping.

Remove the sides of the springform pan and place the crust on a serving plate.  Spread 3/4 cup of fudge topping over the crust to within 1/2 inch of the edge.  top with cream cheese mixture.  Arrange strawberries on top and sprinkle with almonds.  Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set.

Drizzle with remaining fudge topping and serve immediately.
