Classic Tiramisu

This recipe rocks! I currently live near Italy and i get there every second week, this one is far too close to best ones there.

Ingredients :
  •     8 ounces Italian mascarpone cheese
  •     8-10 ladyfingers (Italian savoiardi cookies)
  •     2 small egg yolks (or 1 extra large)
  •     2 tablespoons sugar
  •     1 double shot or 2 ounces espresso or extra strong coffee, cooled
  •     1 1/2 tablespoons brandy or dark rum
  •     1-2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  •     chocolate shavings for garnish (optional)
Directions :
  1. In a bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar and half of the brandy. Whip fast to thicken.
  2. Then, spoon by spoon fold in mascarpone.
  3. Mixture should be a little softer than the consistency of mayonnaise.
  4. If mixture isn’t thick enough and comes out runny, use a hand blender with whipping blades to thicken.
  5. On a small plate, mix espresso plus the rest of brandy.
  6. Quickly dip each side of the ladyfingers (do not completely soak), then add a layer to the bottom of your serving dish.
  7. Top with about 1/3 of mascarpone mixture, then repeat and top with the rest of the mixture.
  8. Cover and rest in fridge for 4 hours or overnight.
  9. Sprinkle cocoa and chocolate shavings on top before serving.
