  1. Cinnamon Coffee grounds FOR THE SYRUP: Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cool and stir in the coffee and brandy. FOR THE FILLING: Whisk the yolks in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk in the sugar and Marsala. Whisk over a pan of simmering water until thickened. Remove and beat by machine until cold.
