  • 3. Whisk constantly using an electric whisk, until the mixture doubles in volume (it will take about 10/15 minutes) and reaches the temperature of 165°-170°F (73°-75°C). Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly, turn from time to time.
  • 4. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff and glossy peaks form.

  • 6. Finally, Fold the egg whites into the mascarpone cream.

Assemble tiramisù:

Dip ladyfingers very quickly (less than a second) into the coffee and line them in one layer of the baking dish. If necessary, break a few ladyfingers to fit them in the dish. Put the 1/3 of the filling over the ladyfingers bottom and smooth the top with an offset spatula and spread it evenly.
Repeat with the second layer of coffee-dipped ladyfingers and filling, then fill a piping bag with the rest of the cream and decorate as you wish.
