To make this delicious Tiramisu dessert, start with preparing the mascarpone filling. Place the sugar and the egg yolks in a medium-sized glass bowl.

Set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Whisk the sugar and egg yolks vigorously until they doubled the size and the mixture is foamy and light.

Let it cool down for a few minutes and then add the mascarpone cheese to the egg yolk mixture one spoonful at a time and gently fold it in using a hand whisk.

Don't use an electric hand mixer to avoid over-whipping the mascarpone cheese. Set it aside and whisk the double cream in a separate bowl until it holds stiff peaks.

Incorporate the mascarpone mixture with the whipped cream, rather than stirring it to help prevent the mixture from separating and becoming grainy.

In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff.  Add the egg whites to the mascarpone mixture, and mix with a silicon spatula, from bottom to top.

To build the tiramisu, dip the ladyfingers into the coffee mixture and arrange half of them on the bottom of a 14" x 9.5" (30cm x 20cm) rectangular ceramic or glass dish.
