With just you, your sweetheart and this delicious Tiramisu.
Ingredients
  Ladyfingers 15
  Strong coffee 1 Cup (16 tbs), freshly brewed (good quality)
  Sugar 4 Tablespoon
  Mascarpone 18 Ounce
  Vanilla beans 2
  Vin santo/Sweet sherry 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Orange 1 (zest and juice)
  Bittersweet chocolate 3 1⁄2 Ounce (best quality)
Directions

Get yourself a medium deep bowl or dish about 8-10 inches in diameter and arrange your ladyfingers snugly in layers on top of each other. Sweeten your coffee with 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Pour the coffee over the ladyfingers, making sure the top layer is completely covered — you'll see the coffee being sucked up by the ladyfinger. While that's soaking, put your mascarpone into a bowl and whisk it up with the rest of the sugar.

Score the vanilla beans lengthwise and scrape the seeds out into the bowl of mascarpone, keeping the beans for making vanilla sugar if you want to. Continue whisking and as you do so, drizzle in the vin santo or sherry. You want to get the mixture to a loose, shiny consistency. If it's still too thick you can use a little of the orange juice to loosen it before you squeeze the rest of the juice over the ladyfingers. Smear the vanilla mascarpone over the ladyfingers and either grate all the chocolate over it or make shavings using a knife or a peeler. Sprinkle lightly with a little finely grated orange zest and keep in the fridge until you're ready to serve.

You are killing me this looks so good, and I don't get into desserts often, but I'd make an exception for this tiramisu.

Ok, I followed this recipe. The ladyfingers (15) and one cup coffee is not right, the ladyfingers were so soggy, and got over drenched in coffee. Better idea is to dunk them in coffee instead of pouring coffee over. Also, be sure to not whip the cheese much as it gets soggy too once whipped too much. Overall, I did not have much success ...but now that I know, hopefully it will be better next time. Tiramisu is actually quite easy to make :)
