Then, take your gluten free lady fingers and dip each one into the espresso and hazelnut liquor mixture and hold it for about 20 seconds. 

Then, start layering the soaked ladyfingers into an 8x10 baking pan. Once you have one full layer of ladyfingers, you are going to take half of the blended ricotta mixture and spoon it over the top of the ladyfingers. then spread it out evenly with a spatula. 

Then, go back to the lady fingers and add a second layer of soaked ladyfingers over the ricotta mixture. Finally, take the second half of the ricotta mixture and spread it over the second layer of ladyfingers. Sprinkle the top with a nice cocoa mixture. Cover the pan and place into the refrigerator for six hours.

  • 3 tbsp hazelnut liqueur, divided
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 ¼ cup espresso
  • 1 square 8x8x2 dish
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Method
Mix 2 tablespoons of hazelnut liqueur to the espresso and set aside. In a mixing bowl combine ricotta cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon liqueur, vanilla extract and lemon zest. In a mixer, whisk egg yolks with 1 tablespoon sugar, till pale yellow. Add ricotta mixture and beat until incorporated. With the mixer on low, pour in the heavy cream and gradually increase the speed as the mixture begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Submerge each ladyfinger into the espresso mixture for about 20 seconds and line the bottom of your dish, in a single file. Complete the first layer then spread half of the ricotta mixture evenly with an offset spatula, covering the ladyfingers. Repeat dipping the ladyfingers in the espresso mixture to make a second layer. Spread the remaining ricotta mixture and dust with sifted cocoa powder. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or over night. Serves 9
