Italian Dessert Dating to the 18th Century!
5 cups strong expresso coffee (cold)
32 savoiardi (Italian Ladyfingers)
10 egg yolks
10 Tbls. sugar
1 lb. mascarpone cheese
1-2 Tbls. marsala wine or brandy
2 cups heavy cream
3 Tbls. unsweetened cocoa powder


Pour cold coffee into a large pie plate, dip quickly (do not soak) 16 of the lady fingers in the coffee and line the bottom of a 12x9x2 inch oval dish with the ladyfingers.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks and sugar until frothy; add the cheese and marsala and whisk until well blended and smooth. In an another bowl, whisk the cream until stiff and fold in the cheese mixture until well blended. Spread 1/3 of the cheese mixture over the ladyfingers. Dip the remaining ladyfingers in coffee and layer over the cheese mixture. Spread the remaining mixture over the ladyfingers. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 6 hrs. When ready to serve, sprinkle the cocoa powder through a fine sieve over the entire tiramisu surface.

This can be frozen for up to six months.
