  1. To make zabaglione: In the top of a double boiler, beat yolks and 1/4 cup sugar until smooth and pale yellow. Place over simmering water and gradually beat in Marsala. Continue to beat over simmering water until soft mounds form, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cool bowl, cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. Whip heavy cream with 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Fold in mascarpone and zabaglione. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. In a small bowl, combine coffee, 2 tablespoons sugar, brandy and vanilla. Arrange 16 ladyfingers in the bottom of a 9x13 inch dish. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of coffee mixture over each cookie. Ladyfingers should be soaked, but not crumbling. Spoon one-third of the cheese mixture over the ladyfingers, and spread evenly. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cocoa. Repeat layering twice. Cover and refrigerate 5 hours before serving.

This is a wonderful tiramisu recipe. What most people don't realize is that the "store bought" or often times "restaurant served" tiramisu is a knockoff that leaves much to be desired. Tiramisu ...

My first Tiramisu and it came out very well. The only substitution I made was Kahlua instead of brandy for soaking the ladyfingers. Delicious!

This recipe is very authentic Italian! When we were in Italy a year ago, we tried many tiramisus...and this one is very much like all the Italian ones...and even better than some of those. As ...

This wasn't as hard to make as I had originally thought. At first I thought the zabaglione tasted too "eggy" but when it was combined with all the other ingredients and left in the refrigerator ...

I hate it when people "redo" a recipe that they have given 5 stars, however I am putting in my two cents worth. I am not sure that I have had a tiramisu before but it is my sis's fav so I tried...

A bit disappointed. I served this anyway since I spent so much money on the brandy and the Marsala wine. I think the problem was that it tasted too "eggy". I would only add 4 yolks, not 5. Also,...
