4 ounces full fat mascarpone cheese
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup whipping cream, chilled
1/4 cup coffee liquor
1/4 cup brewed coffee, chilled
2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Cocoa powder for dusting
About 12 ladyfinger biscuits
Add mascarpone cheese and 2 tablespoons sugar in a bowl.
Whisk until fluffy, using a handheld whisk.
Add in vanilla extract and whipping cream.
Continue whisking until a thick stiff cream forms – being cautious to not over-mix. Set aside.
Mix coffee liquor, instant coffee and 1 tablespoon sugar in a wide flat container until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
Soak ladyfingers in the coffee mixture for a few seconds and arrange at the bottom of 2 glasses, breaking in half if needed.
Dust with cocoa powder.
Spoon and divide half of mascarpone mixture into the glasses.
Repeat with more ladyfingers and the rest of the cream
