[EN] Tiramisù recipe + Zabaione (desserts)

Preparation time: 40 minutes
"Cooking" time: 3-4 hours (in the fridge)
Total time: 4 hours

Ingredients (6 people):
4 Eggs
17,6 oz. (500 g) Mascarpone cheese
2,8 oz. (80 g) White sugar
1,27 US cups (300 ml) Coffee
11 oz. (300 g) Ladyfingers (Savoiardi)
Powder Cocoa

I prepare coffee.

In a large bowl I whisk 3 yolks with the sugar. 
(I put the 4th yolk in a bowl, at the end of the recipe you can find what to do with it) 

I add mascarpone cheese and I continue to whisk, till the cream becames smooth.

In another bowl I beat the egg whites untill stiff.
(I have always problem with this step, so I add a pinch of salt, which stimulates the formation of the foam).

I gently mix the egg whites with the cream.

I put a little bit of coffee in a plate.

Now, an important step: I lightly soak the ladyfingers in the coffee, one at a time. Don't be too fast or too slow. I turn them two times and then I wet the edges. (It's difficult to explain, look at video).

 I place them in the pan on the same hand.

I distribute part of the cream over the fingers.

I place another layer of ladyfingers (I place them in the opposite side) and I top them with the cream again.

I put it in the fridge for 3 hours.

Before serving it, I sprinkle it with the cocoa powder.

That's all!

ps. What to do with the left ingredients:

I whisk the yolk with sugar.
I add Marsala wine and coffee, then I continue to whisk.
This is the Zabaione recipe!
