Step 1

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).

Step 2

Line the bottom of the pan with lady fingers split side up. Save the rest. They are used later.

Step 3

Brush with liqueur; set aside.

Step 4

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy.

Step 5

Add sugar and 1/2 teaspoon almond exact, beating well.

Step 6

In a small mixing bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form; fold into cream cheese mixture.

Step 7

Spoon half into the ladyfinger-lined pan.

Step 8

Top with remaining fingers in a layer and top with remaining cream cheese mixture.

Step 9

Top with cherry pie filling now OR, you can wait until right before you serve it. ( I prefer to wait until ready to serve)

Step 10

Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Step 11

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.
