Biba Caggiano's Tiramisu Recipe. From the only 5 star restaurant in Sac, CA. Absolutely perfect Tiramisu. Delicious, Creamy, Rich and Authentically Italiano
- 6 Egg Yolks
- 1/3 Cup Sugar
- 1 Pound Mascarpone Cheese at Room Temperature
- 3 Egg Whites
- 2 Cups Strong Espresso Brewed
- 2 Tablespoons Cognac or Rum
- 28 Ladyfingers
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

In the bowl of a stand up electric mixer, beat egg yolks and sugar on high speed until the mixture is thick and pale yellow, about 5 minutes. Add the mascarpone and fold in or gently mix until thoroughly incorporated and the mixture is completely smooth.
In a separate mixing bowl, with clean beaters, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry, then fold into the mascarpone mixture.
In a small bowl, combine espresso and cognac or rum. Quickly dip each ladyfinger into the mixture, then line the bottom of a 9X13 inch rectangular dish with a single layer of the dipped ladyfingers. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the layer of ladyfingers then sprinkle with a layer of cocoa powder. Continue to dip more ladyfingers in espresso mixture then make another layer of them in baking dish. Pour remaining mascarpone mixture over the second layer and sprinkle with remaining cocoa.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. Just before serving top with chocolate shavings or curls and serve.
