Don't make the coffee too strong or it will overpower the cheese and chocolate.

Italian ladyfingers work best if you have an Italian store nearby.

They come packaged.

Don't buy the lady fingers from the bakery section. Try to get the ones that are thick (about half inch). I learned this tip from ATK.

The lady fingers will soak up more coffee than you think. Don't be afraid to soak them. I put the coffee in a shallow dish and dunk the lady fingers. I give them a good turn or two and that seems to work pretty well for me. There is nothing worse than a tiramisĂș that is full of dry lady fingers. Hope this helps!
