Tips:
* Be sure to let the mascarpone soften at room temperature.

* The ladyfingers are incredibly absorbent; they only need a few passes through the espresso syrup to be sufficiently soaked.

* If you don't have the means to make espresso, fresh-brewed strong coffee is a good substitute.

2 cups espresso
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons Licor43 or vanilla liqueur
