Why I Love This Recipe

My Aunt Marie's recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 package (4.4 ounces) dry ladyfingers
1/2 cup brewed espresso, cooled
2 tablespoons brandy
6 eggs, separated
6 tablespoons sugar
2 pounds mascarpone cheese
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder


Spread ladyfinders on a baking sheet.

Mix espresso and brandy and drizzle over cookies, do not saturate.

In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar on medium speed until thick and lemon colored.

Add mascarpone and blend on low until combined.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.

Fold egg whites into mascarpone mixture.

Line sides and bottom of a large bowl with ladyfingers.

Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
