Servings: 2


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
