first i changed the servings to yeild 11 servings. this made enough cream for my 8x11 baking dish. I used enough lady fingers to fill the dish. (appx 30?). i followed the recipe exactly with all the ingredients, but i also added a secret ingredient to the mascarpone mixture. i used a pint of heavy whipping cream, beat it seperately to make my own whipped cream and folded it into the mascarpone mix together with allt he other ingredients. this will make the consistency of the cream JUST RIGHT (so its never runny) without changing the taste.
then, to solve your problems of the lady fingers breaking.... use VERY COLD coffee. i buy a large cup of black coffee
WITH 2 SUGARS IN IT and refrigerate it for a few hours. then i dunk the lady fingers very quick on both sides but give them no time to soak.
i serve the next day. IN-FREAKING-CREDIBLE!!!!
