I just made it. I haven't tried it yet, because I literally just put it in the refrigerator.
Notes thus far. I used the mascarpone, not cream cheese. I added the vanilla sugar instead of vanilla. I used 3/4 cups of coffee (double strength recipe from my coffee pot, with Maxwell House master blend). I used slightly more whipping cream. I got a pint, and used the whole thing.
I felt like I didn't have enough of the layers. I think,although I will have to officially wait until morning when I try it, that I will likely double the recipe for the layers. I thought when I was putting it together that it was a rather light covering. I'm not certain there will be enough of the coffee mixture to soak in to the lady fingers.
I'll update the results when I eat some. But for now, I think I'll be doubling them next round. Although, the taste was good (one always has to lick the bowl, you know).
