Ingredients
 8 oz Mascarpone Cheese
 2 Eggs
 3 tbsp Sugar
 10 Drops of Lemon Juice
 10 Drops of Orange Juice
 1 Package of Lady FInger Cookies
 1 Lemon
 1 Orange
 Bakers Dark Chocolate
 Cocoa Powder
 2 cups Italian Espresso
 ¼ cup Milk

Prepare Ingredients
1

Make espresso (2cups), add milk (1/4cup) and sugar to taste. Let cool in a shallow bowl.

2

Grate the lemon peel of ½ lemon

3

Grate the orange peel of ½ orange

4

Juice lemon and orange.....10 drops each

5

6

Open Mascarpone containers and pour off any liquid

7

Unwrap lady fingers and set them aside on a plate

Mixing - With Whisk or Electric Mixer
8

In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar (3 Tbsp) until mixture is light in color and forms a slowly dissolving ribbon on the surface of the mixture when some of it is lifted with the whisk and allowed to fall back into the bowl.

9

Gently whisk the mascarpone into the egg yolk mixture

10

11

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Whites are stiff enough when you can turn the bowl upside-down and the eggwhites will not fall out of the bowl.
