Who doesn't love tiramisu? :) It's been a few years I haven't done it, but last week I decided to do it at home and it was finished in only 1 day. :)

savoiardi biscuits (400-500 gr)
coffee (1 l)
mascarpone cheese (600 gr)
eggs (6)
sugar (6 tablespoons)
cocoa (a few spoons)

Mix the white par of the egg until it becomes thick. In another bowl mix the yellow part of the eggs, add the sugar and mascarpone cheese. Mix until it's creamy, then add the yellow part of the eggs that you've mixed before. Take the biscuits and put them in the coffee for a few seconds, then put them in the baking pan. Put some cream on the top and then add the biscuits with coffee again. After that put some cream again. When you've finished the biscuits cover everything with cream and put some cocoa powder on the top. Leave for at least 3 hours in the fridge before serving (it is better if you leave in the fridge for 6 or 7 hours).
