La Corsette (historic inn) Newton, IA
Bon Appetit January 1988

1 pound bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 cups (1 pound) unsalted butter
5 egg yolks*
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups well-chilled whipping cream
12 ladyfingers

Tia Maria Sauce:
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
5 egg yolks*
2 tablespoons Tia Maria [liqueur]

* Egg Safety Information

For Pavé: Line bottom and sides of 9-cup terrine mold with heavy duty foil. Melt chocolate and butter in heavy medium saucepan over low heat, stirring until melted and smooth. Transfer to large bowl. Cool mixture to lukewarm. Using electric mixer, beat yolks with sugar in small bowl until slowly dissolving ribbon forms when beaters are lifted. Beat into lukewarm
chocolate mixture. Using electric mixer, whip cream to peaks in medium bowl. Whisk 1/4 of cream into chocolate mixture to lighten, then fold in remaining cream. Pour mixture into mold. Smooth top. Arrange ladyfingers atop Pavé, flat sides down and touching. Refrigerate overnight. (Can be prepared 3 days ahead.)
For Sauce
