Close-up of a serving of layered Tiramisu on a white dessert plate, sprinkled with cocoa.

 6 Eggs, separated
 3 tbsp White sugar
 1 lb Mascarpone cheese
 2 tbsp Brandy
 1 tsp Vanilla extract
 1 ½ cups Strong brewed coffee, room temperature
 30 Ladyfinger cookies
 8 oz Finely chopped bittersweet chocolate

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs yolks and sugar with an electric mixer until light yellow, 1 minute. Beat in mascarpone, brandy, and vanilla until smooth.


In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold egg whites into mascarpone mixture.


Quickly dip ladyfingers, one at a time, in cooled coffee and arrange them in a 9" x 13" baking dish. Use about 15 cookies to cover the bottom of the dish.


Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the cookie crust and sprinkle the chocolate on the top. Repeat the soaked cookie and cheese layers.


Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight before serving.
