  1. Recipe Instructions * Soften Cream Cheese to room temperature. ** Grind Almonds in the blender, if ground almonds are not available. Wash and drain cherries. Remove stones and reserve 8 whole cherries for garnish. Place cherries in a bowl; add kirsch. In a small pan boil 3 T sugar and the water for a minute to make a thin sugar syrup. Add syrup to cherries; stir to blend. Cover and let soak for 20 minutes. Cut the ladyfingers in half, divide into 4 portions, and place in individual glass dishes. Arrange cherries on top. Thoroughly blend cream cheese, 3 T sugar, vanilla extract, and ground almonds. Whip the cream and carefully fold it into the cream-cheese mixture. Spoon over the cherries.
