            Serves:  6


             1 cup freshly brewed double strength MAXWELL HOUSE Coffee , at room temperature

             1/2 cup milk

             1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese , softened

             1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding and Pie Filling

             1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

             Cookies, such as biscotti or chocolate-laced pirouettes

             Chocolate-covered coffee beans (optional)

                 Beat coffee and milk gradually into cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add pudding mix and cinnamon. Beat on low speed 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes or until thickened. Gently stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping. Spoon mixture into 1-quart serving bowl or 6 dessert glasses.
