Tiramisu, Frozen (D, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 8-12

1 8-oz. package Philadelphia-type cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon Cognac or Brandy plus 2 to 3 tablespoons Manischewitz grape Concord wine (or sherry, or sweet Marsala, but our Concord wine will give it the taste that we all love)
2 cups whipping cream
1-1/2 cups prepared liquid espresso coffee, sweetened with 1 tablespoon sugar
2 packages ladyfingers, divided
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Place the cream cheese, the sugar, and milk in the food processor and blend until smooth. Blend in the vanilla and cognac and wine then transfer to a medium mixing bowl.

Whip the cream until stiff and fold into the cream cheese mixture. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 1 hour.

Pour the sweetened coffee into a bowl and dip in each ladyfinger rapidly (don't saturate) and place one layer in a lasagna type baking dish and cover with half of the cream cheese mixture. Repeat with another layer. Place the cocoa powder in a strainer and dust to cover the top evenly. Refrigerate.

Poster's Notes:
My son-in-law says this is the best tiramisu he has eaten and that I should sell it to restaurants. My daughter told me they went to a party where tiramisu was served and Carlos said, "My mother-in-law makes the very best tiramisu." So how about that for a great recommendation. This recipe deserves it. The recipe is made without any eggs and has cream cheese instead of the usual Mascarpone cheese.
