DIRECTIONS

  • Cream together egg yolks & sugar in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Add 1/3 cup of the marsala and continue to whisk until the mixture is thick and doubled in volume (I use my hand mixer for this so I don't get tired of whisking, and it gets more air into the eggs). Remove from heat, and stir in the mascarpone until completely blended.
  • In a chilled bowl, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture to lighten.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the espresso, chocolate, rum, vanilla, and remaining 2 Tbsp of marsala. Heat gently and stir to dissolve the chocolate. Then, chill the mixture to cool it down, about 15 minutes.
  • Quickly dip each lady finger into the coffe mixture and arrange ina single layer on the bottom of a 9x13 inch glass baking dish. Do not soak the cookies or they will become too moist. Spread half of the mascarpone cream evenly over the dipped lady fingers. Repeat with a second layer of dipped lady fingers and remaining macarpone cream.
  • Top with either cocoa powder or shaved chocolate. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving so everything will set up. You can even make it the day before and the lady fingers will get soft and cake-like.
