Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, beat the mascarpone with the egg yolks and 3 tablespoons of the sugar. In a large stainless steel bowl, whip the egg whites until they hold soft peaks. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat until the peaks are firm and glossy. Fold half of the egg whites into the mascarpone, then fold in the remaining whites.

  • Pour the coffee into a deep dish. Dip both sides of 12 of the ladyfingers into the coffee and arrange them in a single layer in a deep 8-inch-square glass baking dish. Spread half of the mascarpone filling on top. Dip the remaining 12 ladyfingers in the coffee and arrange them in a layer over the filling. Spread the remaining mascarpone over the lady-fingers and dust generously with cocoa. Refrigerate the tiramisu until thoroughly chilled, at least 2 hours or overnight.
