6 whole eggs
500 g mascarpone
120 g sugar
500 ml coffee (about 12 coffee)
400 g ladyfingers (or savoiardi in Italian)

These ingredients are able to feed:  15persons


In a bowl, whip the egg yolks with 60 g of sugar. Once you have foamy mix, add the mascarpone. Stir until the mixture is smooth. In another bowl, whip the egg whites with the remaining sugar. Gently combine the egg whites to the mixture of reds and mascarpone. Use a wooden spoon with movements from the bottom upwards.

For reasons of safety it is preferable to use pasteurized eggs, you can pasteurize them yourself doing the whipping eggs in a water bath (with water at 60-65 C).
Once prepared the mascarpone cream, you can proceed with the creation of tiramisu. Soak the finger biscuits in the coffee at room temperature and place them in the baking dish, in the glass, in the cup or tray (depending on your choice). Put on a layer of cream and sprinkle with cocoa. Make another layer of ladyfingers soaked in coffee. Then finish with a cover with mascarpone cream, sprinkle with cocoa powder and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
Be careful, coffee is not too hot otherwise in contact with the mascarpone cream will melt.
