  3. Beat the egg whites with a little sugar until stiff.
  4. Add the beaten eggs whites to the mascarpone mixture.
  5. Dip the biscuits (the sugary side) in the coffee (you can add a splash of amaretto in the coffee) and line them in a dish.

My middle school math teacher was Italian and gave me this recipe.
