In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil gently for 1 minute, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.
In a medium bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form; set aside. Whisk mascarpone into yolk mixture until smooth and mix the whipped cream and mascarpone cheese mixture together.
In a small bowl, combine coffee and Kahlua. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise and drizzle or brush on coffee mixture.
