Gather up a 10×15 inch glass container (or you can use small serving glasses), and dip each ladyfinger into the espresso/coffee for 2-5 seconds and layer on the bottom of the serving dish.

Don’t soak the ladyfingers so much that they fall apart. Once you form a layer on the bottom of the dish, spread 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.
