Step:1

In a saucepan, bring water to boil, then reduce heat to simmer.

Keep a mixing bowl that will fit over the top of the pan, but the pan should not sink all the way.

Add the separated egg yolks (room temperature) in a mixing bowl, add 1/8 cup sugar & whisk until yolks turned to pale yellow in color.

Cook over simmering heat, and use the rubber spatula to scrap the bowl.

Cover the mixture with plastic wrap & refrigerate until cool.

Step 2:

In a mixing bowl, combine whipping cream, vanilla extract & remaining tablespoon sugar and whip until not quite stiff (over stiffing lead to butter) using hand mixer.

Add the soften room temperature mascarpone cheese, to the chilled egg yolk mixture & mix it using hand mixture on low speed or fold it with spatula.

Fold the whipped cream mixture to the cheese & egg yolk mixture by using spatula.

Sieve the coco powder to the mixture & fold it slowly with spatula.

Cover it with the plastic wrap & refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Step 3:

Keep the brewed espresso in a separate bowl.

Now arrange the ladies finger in single layer in the mini spring pan , by dipping in espresso mixture.

Spread half the mascarpone / cream / Zabaglion mixture over the ladyfingers. Dust some cocoa powder on top of the cheese filling.

Repeat with remaining cookies and cream mixture.

Cover and chill it for 6 hours or overnight in refrigrator.

Sprinkle with grated dark chocolate just before serving & enjoy !!!

Hints:

Instead of coca powder, temper the ¼ cup of dark chocolate while cooking the egg yolk.

To enrich the chocolate flavor add a ½ tsp of instant coffee powder / brewed in egg yolk mixture.

For vegan version, avoid egg & follow the remaining procedure.
