First you have to do the ladyfingers or use 300g of those found on the market

Now start composing tiramisu. Separated the yolks from the egg whites, being careful not to make you go even a little yolk in the egg whites otherwise they do not mount

Whip the yolks with 50g of sugar, until they became swollen and creamy

Put 60 ml of water with 50g sugar in a saucepan, cook up to 121 degrees. For the temperature it takes the thermometer, otherwise when you see that it is almost about to caramel, turn off

Immediately after it has been switched off, pour it flush into the egg, always whipping it with a whisk, in this way you will obtain pasteurization

Whip the egg whites until stiff with a pinch of salt

Make the pasteurization of the egg whites exactly as you did for the yolks (Step 4 and 5), with the same amount of sugar and water

Put the mascarpone cheese and the liqueur in the pasteurized yolks and with the whisk whisk them until it is well smooth and without lumps

Put the pasteurized egg whites in the mascarpone cream and with the spatula mix gently from the bottom upwards until it has incorporated everything well

Take a large glass pyrex oblong or a container suitable for the freezer, pour a fourth part of the mascarpone cream, until the bottom is covered well

Grease the ladyfingers in the bitter coffee, row them in the baking dish until you cover the bottom, then cover them abundant with other cream and make another row of ladyfingers, continue so until you have finished the ingredients, bearing in mind that you have to complete with the cream

Cover the pyrex oblong, with an aluminum or cling sheet, put it in the Freezer for at least 12 hours, then, pull it out, remove the aluminum and cover with plenty of bitter cocoa. Serve after a couple of hours
