Ingredients:  
5 eggs, separated
3/4 cup sugar
1 - 1/3 cups mascarpone
1 cup strong coffee (see note below)
3 Tbsp brandy or sweet Marsala (optional)
36 (approx.) Ladyfingers
1 dark chocolate bar (3 oz.), finely grated -OR- use sifted cocoa powder

Directions:
Directions:
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is light and fluffy and leaves a ribbon trail when dropped from the whisk. Add the mascarpone and beat until the mixture is smooth.

Whisk the egg whites in a clean dry glass bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into the mascarpone mixture.

Pour the coffee into a shallow dish and add the brandy. Dip enough ladyfingers into the coffee to cover the bottom of a 10 inch square dish. The ladyfingers should be fairly well soaked, but not so much so that they break up. Arrange the ladyfingers in one tightly packed layer on the bottom of the dish.

Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the layer of ladyfingers. Add another layer of soaked ladyfingers and then another layer of mascarpone, smoothing the top layer neatly. Dust with the grated chocolate to serve. The flavors will be better developed if you can make the tiramisu a few hours in advance or even the night before. If you have time to do this, don't dust with the chocolate, but cover with plastic wrap and chill. Dust with chocolate only at the last minute or it will melt. Cut into squares and serve.

Personal Notes:
I usually end up using much more than a cup of coffee in order to soak the ladyfingers more thoroughly. It depends if you want a more 'wet' or more 'dry' tiramisu. You may want to use decaf coffee if you're serving this late at night.
