6 egg yolks
1 cup white sugar, divided
9 ounces mascarpone cheese
6 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons kirschwasser
1 1/4 cups strong brewed coffee, cold
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
Directions Prep:20min › Ready in:20min
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.
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.
Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Sprinkle with cocoa just before serving.
