DIRECTIONS

  • Split the ladyfingers, then stand the halves around the edges of the 9-inch springform pan (placing the rounded sides of ladyfingers against the pan).
  • Line the bottom of the pan with lady fingers split side up. Save the rest. They are used later.
  • Brush with liqueur; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy.
  • Add sugar and 1/2 teaspoon almond exact, beating well.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form; fold into cream cheese mixture.
  • Spoon half into the ladyfinger-lined pan.
  • Top with remaining fingers in a layer and top with remaining cream cheese mixture.
  • Top with cherry pie filling now OR, you can wait until right before you serve it.
  • Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  • Optional: For added flavor, pour cherry pie filling into a bowl ahead of time, and stir with 1/4 tsp almond extract. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours prior to using in the recipe. For one cup liquid heavy cream to be whipped (will double in volume), use 2 cups thawed COOL WHIP/.
