Use the best ingredients to get the best flavor. That's what I've learned the many, many times I have tweaked this recipe to get it just right. This recipe is generous with the creamy mascarpone cheese mixture on purpose, and I never use all the ladyfingers. I'm still not done tweaking, but it's about time I share the recipe, and I'm including the exact ingredients with their brands. Just so you know, the next thing I'm thinking about is maybe adding flavor to the mascarpone mixture. Let me know what you think, and please include any suggestions. Thanks!
