Something went wrong with my computer and was unable to access my blog. So have not posted the recipes I intended for October. Am now using Ranita's laptop. What a relief to be able to do one of my favourite weekly activities. This recipe is absolutely wonderful and a knock out for parties when you have a lot to do. It was sms'd by a friend a while ago and I saved it for a very special occasion. Jayanthi Dhanaraj & Kenneth Pichamuthu, this one is for you.
One large beautiful bowl; 17 Marie Biscuits; 250 gms cream cheese; 250 gms whipped cream; caster sugar to taste; 2 dsp Nescafe dissolved in 1/4 cup hot water with 2 tsp sugar added to it; whole almonds for garnish.
Beat the whipped cream, cream cheese and sugar (to taste) together. Keep aside. Dip 6 of the biscuits in the Nescafe and place in a layer at the bottom of the bowl. Pour half of the beaten mixture over and repeat with 6 more biscuits making two layers. Top with remaining biscuits and garnish with almonds. Drizzle remaining Nescafe over the top. Keep in refrigerator to set overnight. Can have as many layers as desired.
Tastes wonderful and looks good too.
