Oh my goodness! This was heavenly. My husband had never had tiramisu before, and I've had it a few times, but this had both of us saying, "Wow!" and wanting more. I halved the recipe, but DOUBLED the coffee/rum as suggested by many others. I brewed the coffee extra-strong, poured a half cup, and added about four generous tablespoons of Cap't Morgan's Spiced Rum (my fave). I lined a 9x5 bread tin with cling wrap (so easy to lift the dessert out to cut and serve and then drop back in to save the leftovers), then layered 1/2 the lady fingers on the bottom (two rows of five). I DID NOT SPLIT the lady fingers, as the ones I found were thin and delicate. Drizzled a hefty amount of the coffee mix, then I layered 1/2 the mascarpone mixture and then 1/2 the cream. Repeated the same steps, then sifted on a dusting of cocoa powder, and just a touch of confectioner's sugar. I had it sit in the fridge for a full 24 hours to allow the flavors to mingle and intensify. This would be a great dessert to impress company, especially after a meal of lasagna with garlic bread and a colorful green salad. SO DELISH!
