Tiramisu...a delightful dessert

Tiramisu is one of S's favourite desserts and something that I had been wanting to prepare at home from a very long time. Upon googling I found this detailed and easy to follow recipe(I'm making it for the first time :)) It turned out pretty good. *Special thanks to Manju of blog mirchmasala for the inspiration :)

Ingredients:

4 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup water
4 eggs yolks
4 ounces cream cheese
6 ounces mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp marsala/port wine (I used vanilla essence)
8 ounces heavy whipping cream
2 cups of expresso or strong coffee( I also added 1 tsp sugar )
1 ounce dark rum (I skipped this)
2 tbsp sugar
24 lady fingers
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp grated semi sweet chocolate grated

Preparation:
Cook sugar and water together till it all the sugar dissolves well. set it aside to cool.
Prepare egg mixture by whipping the egg yolks on high speed until pale yellow and thick, then slowly pour the sugar syrup while mixing on high until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add cream cheese and and whip on medium speed until smooth.
Add mascarpone cheese and marsala wine (I used vanilla essence) mix until incorporated . Fold in whipped cream . Refrigerate.

Assembling the Tiramisu:

Dip the lady fingers in the coffee decocotion and place a layer on the bottom of a serving platter.

Top with one layer of chilled cream mixture. Repeat it with the rest of the lady fingers and
cream alternatingly. The top layer should be that of cream.
Sift cocoa over the top layer and refrigerate atleat for 5-6 hours.
Sprinkle with grated chocolate and serve.

hi HOOC,
ladyfingers are kinda light crisp biscuits shaped like fingers :) used in some typical desserts which calls for sugar syrup/coffee soaked ladyfingers.

Suparna, you know what, I am trying to prepare this from past 3-4 months, but not able to find the lady finger biscuits. I easily get other ingredients here :)
