Serves 6

  • 6 eggs, separated

  • 2 (8-ounce) containers mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups espresso or strong coffee, divided
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup amaretto, divided
  • 20 to 25 packaged ladyfingers
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting
  1. Combine egg yolks and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer at medium-high speed 2 to 3 minutes until light yellow; add mascarpone, 1 tablespoon espresso, and 2 tablespoons amaretto, whisking until very smooth.
  2. Combine egg whites and 1/2 cup sugar in a separate large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into mascarpone mixture.

  4. Quickly dip each ladyfinger into espresso mixture and create a single layer along the bottom of a 13×9-inch dish.
