       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
      
                               Make It

        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


    Next layer


    Again try to fill the pan


    The rest of the filling


    Dust with the Cocoa Powder




    Thanks for looking

    No smoke? Lol

    Looks great. Interesting replacement for mascarpone. Doesn't the cream cheese taste sour in the final product?

    I don't like many sweets. Tiramisu is not one of them.

    Looks great Richie.  I love tiramisu, Miss Linda not so much.  That just means more for me LOL.  I've always had it with the marscarpone, but I'm sure going to give it a try with the cream cheese.

    Looks great Richie........Mine is quite similar. But being from Louisiana I have to use Community dark roast coffee and I use my own Tia Maria I make, coffee liqueur.

    I like you don't let it set, turn it out and then cover it with whipped cream also.

    Richie, try making some of this, after it smooths think about how it would taste on your Tiramisu.

    Yeppers that looks like some good stuff, damn we just live too far apart!
