    Ingredients
    Serves: 5 

    • 36 ladyfinger cookies
    • 6 egg yolks
    • 1 cup (225g) caster sugar, divided
    • 260g mascarpone cheese
    • 6 egg whites, stiffly beaten
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) thickened cream

    • 1 1/4 cups strong brewed coffee, cold
    • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

    Directions
    Prep:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a medium bowl beat together the egg yolks and 1/3 cup of sugar. Using a wooden spoon stir in mascarpone cheese, beaten egg whites, cream and kirschwasser; stir until smooth. Set aside.
    2. Dissolve remaining 2/3 cup sugar in coffee. Quickly, to avoid complete saturation, dip ends of ladyfingers in coffee mixture. Place ladyfingers in a single layer in a 24x34cm (9 x 13 inch) glass baking dish. Spread a layer of cheese mixture over the ladyfingers; repeat layers, ending with cheese mixture.
    3. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Sprinkle with cocoa just before serving.

    I served this at an Italian themed dinner party. It was the easiest item on the menu to prepare - and the that got the most compliments! It is not cooked, so the alcohol is not burned off. I wouldn't serve large pieces to children. :-) Also, remember, the eggs are not coddled, so keep refridgerated. I modified the recipe slightly to include a third layer. Very easy recipe to modify. I used 50% more lady fingers, another 2/3 cup coffee, teaspoon of cognac (Yes, I used cognac in lieu of rum), etc. It wasn't an exact science - I eyeballed most of it - but the recipe is really friendly, so everything turned out perfectly. Great recipe! Give it a try! One other tip - use a glass pan, not metal. Metal will react with your liquor and turn the lady fingers dark green/black. Not pretty.  -  26 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe was okay. I replaced the rum with Kahula, which made it alot better. I highly recommend chilling this desert over night, it was much better than four hours after making it. I also suggest making a small batch to try your hand at it first, it was helpful to tweek the recipe to my taste.  -  22 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    wow. delicious and easy. i couldn't find ladyfingers at the store, so i used vanilla wafers instead. and i substituted kahlua for all the rum. it was fantastic, if i do say so myself. the only thing i would do differently next time is soak the cookies longer. i was afraid they would get too soggy, but i think they weren't soggy enough. my bad. overall, though, totally killer and it really was easy to prepare.  -  17 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
