Ingredients
 

  • 7 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 ounce crème de cacao chocolate liqueur, white
  • 1/4 ounce coffee liqueur
  • 21 ounce can country style cherry pie filling, or 2 1/2 cups homemade
  • 8 lady finger cookies
  • 4 ounces semi sweet chocolate

Instructions
 

  • In a tall bowl combine 6 tablespoons sugar, butter and cream cheese. Beat with an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Once completely smooth, add cream.
  • Whip with mixer until the cream becomes stiff. The cream is stiff when you place a spoon in the bowl and remove it and the cream stand up. Set aside.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove cherries from can and add to a bowl. Pour cherry filling into a separate shallow bowl. Add chocolate liqueur, coffee liqueur and 1 Tbsp sugar. Stir to combine.
  • One at a time dip ladyfingers into cherry filling (dip each side for approximately 3 seconds) and crumble into bottom of 4 ounce jar or bowl. Crumble 2 ladyfingers into the bottom of each jar and press down to even crust out.
  • Add a heaping spoonful of cream on top of ladyfingers. Smooth cream out using the back of spoon. Using a vegetable peeler shave a layer of chocolate over cream. About ¾ ounce of chocolate in this layer.
  • Layer in a heaping scoop of cherries; then add a dollop of cream. Shave ¼ ounce chocolate over top.
  • Repeat until all dishes are assembled. Chill until ready to serve.
  • Enjoy.

  1. Donna,
    This sounds like a great twist on one of my favorites.
    Do you mean the crunchy savoiardi, or the sponge cake-type soft ladyfingers?
