  • 4 large pasteurized eggs see instructions above
  • 120 grams white sugar
  • 500 grams mascarpone
  • 2 cups espresso freshly brewed
  • 12 ladyfinger cookies (aka Savoiardi)
  • 18 Pan di Stelle cookies
  • cocoa powder to sprinkle on top


  • Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks – make sure no egg yolks sneak into the whites!
  • Place egg whites in a large bowl.
  • Add half of the sugar to the egg yolks and beat with the electric whisk until you achieve a pale, yellowish color.
  • Whisk the mascarpone into the egg yolk mixture little by little until it’s all incorporated. Set aside and clean the whisk attachment (important for the next step!)
  • In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk the egg whites and add the remaining sugar little by little until you achieve stiff peaks.
  • With a spatula, delicately fold in the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture bit by bit, making sure all of the egg whites are incorporated into the yolks before adding more.
  • Cover the bottom of your ramekins with the egg and cream mixture.
  • Dip the ladyfingers in the espresso and arrange them in your ramekins so you create one layer of cookies – see note above about the consistency you should aim for when dipping the ladyfinger cookies!
  • Make another layer of egg and cream mixture, making sure you completely cover the ladyfingers from the previous layer.
  • Dip the Pan di Stelle cookies in espresso and arrange them to create another layer above the egg and cream mixture.
  • Alternate between the egg and cream mixture layers and the both cookie layers until you reach the top, making sure you finish off with an egg and cream mixture layer.
  • Sprinkle cocoa powder on the last layer of egg and cream mixture.
  • Chill the ramekins the fridge for 2-4 hours, or overnight if possible.
  • Enjoy right out of the fridge and accompany with your favorite espresso!
