Cinnamon Vanilla Tiramisu

(I don’t know where I got this one, but I took the time to hand-write it out so it must have struck my fancy.)

2.8 oz package of milk or dark chocolate mousse mix

1 cup Cinnamon Vanilla Creme flavored creamer

8 oz package mascarpone cheese or cream cheese at room temperature

1 cup espresso or instant coffee, cooled

1-2 Tbls brandy

2, 3.5 oz packages ladyfingers, divided

shaved or grated chocolate

ground cinnamon

1. Prepare mousse mix according to package directions using the 1 cup creamer instead of milk.

2. Fold cheese into mousse mixture (if using cream cheese, mix with beaters first).

3. Combine coffee & brandy in a shallow dish.  Dip ladyfingers into coffee mixture.  Line bottom of an 8″ brownie pan with 1/2 of the moist ladyfingers.  Spoon 1/2 of mousse mixture over ladyfingers.  Top with remaining ladyfingers & then remaining mousse.  Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.  Sprinkle with chocolate & cinnamon.
