Can anyone tell me why when I make Tiramisu, the mascarpone/egg mixture starts out nice and creamy but sometimes once it gets cold in the fridge - it becomes grainy - almost like the fat in the cheese forms pinhead size little balls?

were the ingredients all at room temp?

Or, perhaps you overbeat the cheese? The eggs and sugar should be beaten, but the mascarpone should be folded in.
