  • Mascarpone Filling
  • In a cold mixing bowl, beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form and place in refrigerator to chill
  • Combine the egg yolks and sugar in a glass bowl and whisk over a pot of lightly boiling water for 12 minutes until thick (use a double boiler if you have one for this step)

  • Spread a third of of the mascarpone filling on top of the lady fingers and then dust with the cocoa powder
  • Continue with two more layers each, the last thing being the dusting of cocoa powder on top
