What You Need
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) ladyfingers
2 Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup boiling water
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. almond-flavored liqueur or brandy (use vanilla instead)
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
1 tsp. unsweetened unsweetened cocoa powder
ARRANGE 1 pkg. of the ladyfingers on bottom of 13x9-inch dish. Dissolve instan coffee and 1 Tbsp. sugar in boiling water. Brush 1/2 cup of the coffee mixture over ladyfingers in dish.I like to dip them in the coffee.
BEAT cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add 1/2 cup sugar and liqueur, mixing until blended. Gently fold in whipped topping in.
SPREAD one half of the cream cheese mixture over ladyfingers. Top with remaining ladyfingers brush with remaining coffee. Spoon remaining cream cheese mixture over ladyfingers. Dust with cocoa. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
This is a big hit at parties,easy to make
Players missing the Cocoa Powder
I cheat and add sugar with cream cheese
all blended together
Cool Whip added
Cool Whip gets folded in, The mixer would break it down to a liquid.
Bottom Layer of Lady fingers I dip them in to the coffee
Do not hold them in to long (mush)
Fill the bottom as best you can This size pan needs 3 packs of Lady Fingers
You get the idea by now
Add half the filling
Spread it as even as you can
Again try to fill the pan
The rest of the filling
Dust with the Cocoa Powder
Thanks for looking
