"I made and enjoyed this recipe many years ago, it come's from an Italian book that was given to me by someone very special many years ago. Back then mascarpone was very hard to come by and if you were able to get it, it was expensive. Nowadays it is everywhere and very reasonable in price, so I since finding this recipe again, I am hoping to make it again soon. *NOTE: Savoiardi biscuits are also known as Ladyfingers, are Italian biscuits made with a sponge cake batter. Also if available espresso coffee (other than instant) is wonderful in this recipe!*"
