2/3
cup milk
1
lb mascarpone cheese or 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 1/4
cups whipping (heavy) cream

teaspoon vanilla
1/4
cup brewed espresso or very strong coffee, chilled
2
tablespoons rum*
2
packages (3 oz each) ladyfingers**
1 1/2

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, beat egg yolks and sugar with wire whisk until well mixed. Beat in milk. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly; reduce heat to low. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Pour into medium bowl; place plastic wrap directly onto surface of custard mixture. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until chilled.

Spread half of the cheese mixture over ladyfingers; spread with half of the whipped cream. Repeat layers with remaining ladyfingers, cheese mixture and whipped cream. Sprinkle with cocoa. Refrigerate at least 4 to 6 hours to develop flavors but no longer than 24 hours. Store covered in refrigerator.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Mascarpone is a sinfully rich double or triple cream cheese that originated in the Lombardy region of Italy. It has a delicate, buttery flavor with just a hint of sweetness. Look for it in the cheese case in large supermarkets, specialty cheese shops or gourmet food stores.

*1/8 teaspoon rum extract mixed with 2 tablespoons water can be substituted for the rum.

**2 packages frozen (thawed) pound cake (10.75-oz each) can be substituted for the ladyfingers. Place each pound cake on its side; carefully cut each into 3 lengthwise slices (to total 6 slices). Brush each slice with espresso mixture (do not soak). Arrange 3 slices crosswise in baking dish. Layer as directed in step 4, adding remaining 3 slices.
