  1. Mix cooled coffee and Marsala wine together in a bowl.
  2. Beat egg yolks with half of the sugar in a bowl until you have a clear cream with no lumps. Stir the mascarpone with a wooden spoon or whisk in a separate bowl until creamy; stir into the egg yolks.
  3. Beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until they form peaks; fold gently into mascarpone mixture.
  4. Dip half of the savoiardi biscuits into coffee-Marsala mixture. Arrange dipped biscuits carefully in a glass dish. Cover dipped biscuits with half of the mascarpone mixture. Smooth out mascarpone until evenly distributed; top with half of the cocoa powder. Repeat layering with dipped savoiardi biscuits, mascarpone mixture, and cocoa powder; top with chocolate shavings.
  5. Refrigerate tiramisu until flavors blend, at least 3 hours.

I’m addicted to tiramisù and this version doesn’t disappoint. I’m not a big fan of the flavor of Marsala wine, but if you are this is for you. Thank you for the recipe.
