Ingredients:  
2 egg whites
4 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
1 (16-ounce) container mascarpone cheese
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup very strong espresso
1/2 to 2/3 cup coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua)
24 ladyfingers
Bittersweet chocolate

Directions:
Directions:
Whip egg whites and 2 tablespoons sugar to stiff but not dry peaks; set aside.

Whip cheese, vanilla and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar until smooth. Stir a fourth of the egg whites into the cheese to lighten, then gently fold in the rest. Cover and chill.
Combine coffee and liqueur.
To assemble tiramisu: Dip lady- fingers one at a time into the coffee mixture; layer in a loaf pan. Add enough of the cheese mixture to make a 1-inch-thick layer. Add another layer of soaked ladyfingers and another layer of the cheese mixture. You may have some of the coffee mixture left over. Cover the pan and refrigerate for at least 2
hours so dessert can firm up. (Dessert can also be assembled in individual serving bowl or cups.)
When ready to serve, gently lift a cut piece vertically out of the pan and lay it on its side on a plate; a wide pancake turner usually works best. (Getting the first piece out of the pan is tricky.) Sprinkle each serving with grated chocolate.
