In a saucepan, bring some water to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Find a mixing bowl that will fit over the top of the pan, but not sink all the way in. (Do-it-yourself double boiler!)

Put 5 egg yolks into the mixing bowl.

Place the mixing bowl on the saucepan with the simmering water. Slowly add 1/2 cup Marsala wine and whisk to combine. Cook over the simmering water, and use a rubber spatula to scrape the pan. Cook until thick.

Spoon a small amount of the coffee mixture over each ladyfinger

(keep it under 1 tablespoon per cookie and you’ll be fine). Plop 1/3 of the cold cream/mascarpone/zabaglione mixture on top and spread it into a layer.

Scatter with raspberries and grate over a thin layer of semi sweet chocolate. Repeat the process two more times. (I skipped this sifted cocoa over the top instead)

Cover and refrigerate for a few hours before serving. This allows for more moisture to soften the cookies and the whole mixture to meld together. To serve, spoon out helpings onto individual plates.

Note: Tiramisu does not last beyond 24 to 36 hours, as everything eventually starts to break down and become soupy.
