6 Egg Yolks 

1 1/4 C Sugar 

2 tubs of Marscapone Cheese 

1 3/4 C heavy whipping cream

Lady Fingers (I think I used two boxes of the 3.5 oz Roland brand– could use more or less) 

6 T warm water 

4 T Espresso (I used Instant) 

2 cups coffee liqueur

Cocoa Powder (for Dusting) 
Combine Egg Yolks and Sugar in a mixer and mix until light lemon color. Add Mascarpone and mix until combined. Whip whipping cream (I added some vanilla and think cinnamon would be great too) in a separate bowl until consistency is right– think peaks, not butter :). Fold whipped cream into Marscapone/ Egg Mixture. 

Combine Espresso with the warm water, let it dissolve. Add in the coffee liqueur. One at a time dip the ladyfingers into the mixture–think 4-6 seconds as you want the cookies to still have a crunch. 

As you soak the ladyfingers, lay them in the pan. Once a layer is complete add half of the cheese mixture. Repeat the same steps for the second layer. Smooth cream and dust with the cocoa powder.
