Evenly spread half the mascarpone mixture over Ladyfingers; repeat layers.

I've made this Tiramisu 2,times already. 1) The first one, I followed every step. The tiramisu was runny bec. of the addition of eggwhite. 2) Second try - I omitted the eggwhite, Tiramisu was better, tastier and not runny! So, if I'll make this again, I'll omit the eggwhite. (I don't know the real reason why it has the eggwhite.)

I agree w/ PrincessRana that the masc. mix was runny w/ the egg whites added - I was sure to beat the whites enuff so that peaks formed. I tried to spread the cream on the mascarpone, but everything was so runny that the cream wouldn't spread! I used 1 whole cup on only 1/2 of the pan,

I made this and was delicious. I used amaretti cookies instead of the biscotti because I didnt have any. I turned out great and was even better after 1 or 2 days. I will definitely do it again.

This was delicious!! I made it for a party and everyone loved it. It was very easy to prepare. I used Tia Maria instead of Kahula and Amaretti cookies instead of the almond biscotti .

I made this recipe twice, the first time, I got distracted and forgot to add the egg whites (step 3), but the final product was nice, firm and delicious. A few days later I made it for another event, and this time, I added the egg whites as directed, but my final product was a little soggy, but still tasted great...I'm wondering why the "incorrect" version, without the egg whites turned out better than the correct one!
