This was a dish we made while we were in Italy, and even remade while back in America. This is one of my favorite desserts, and this lived up to it. It has a combination of creamy, tart, and crunchy! 
“An Italian classic! There are of course many versions all over Italy, but this one is simple, traditional and divinely delicious.”

4 eggs
6 tbsp powdered sugar
500g (18oz) mascarpone
20 Savoiardi biscuits (ladyfingers)
250 ml strong black espresso coffee
20g  cocoa powder
1 full glass Marsala

1)Separate the eggs. 

2)Place the sugar (5 tbsp) and yolks in a bowl and mix them together. 

3)Add the mascarpone and mix until creamy.

4) Beat the egg whites separately in a bowl, add 1 tbsp sugar and then incorporate it in to the mixture by gently moving the tablespoon from the bottom of the mixture to the top.

5)Take another bowl and add the coffee with the Marsala.

6)Dip the biscuits in the coffee for a couple of seconds (no longer otherwise theyʼll break).

7)Line a bowl (for one portion) with a layer of cream. Cover with the biscuits and then pour on another layer of cream. Sprinkle the cocoa powder over the cream. 

Add another layer of biscuits and then a double layer of cream. 

Sprinkle the cocoa powder over the cream and chill for an hour. 

Dust with cocoa powder before serving.
