FanFreakin'tastic!!!! OMG....I am so glad that I chose this recipe over the many others on this site...I made this Christmas eve to serve for dessert on Christmas day for 10 of us. It was absolutely the best, and my family raved over it.....I made espresso using instant espresso granuals, used Kahlua instead of the rum, and did need to double this as the lady fingers are like little sponges. I did use the Savoiardi lady fingers that I easily found at Shop-Rite. They are the hard lady fingers, not the soft. I dipped each one half-way(long ways)and then placed the espresso/kahlua side up in a tin pan (11 3/4" X 9 1/2") and then spred my filling on top. By the way I loved that the egg yolks were cooked and that you didnt need to use a double boiler, after I made the egg yolk and marscapone filling, I made the whipped cream and then folded that into the cheese mixture (so I had one filling instead of 2)I layered the filling over the fingers and repeated. I made 3 layers with the marscapone cheese filling on the top. I dusted with the cocoa powder when I served the dessert. Everyone said it tasted like it was from a fine Italian restuarant. I was nervous that it would become soggy and runny....and that was not the case it was perfect. I recommend folding the whipped cream into the egg/cheese filling. I really think it saves a step and really makes the filling light and very flavorful. Thanks for this recipe. I highly rate this.....10 stars+!
