Whisk in mascarpone cheese until almost smooth. Whip heavy cream and vanilla until soft peaks form.
  2. Combine lemon juice and limoncello. Briefly dip 24 ladyfingers into lemon mixture and place in the bottom of an 11x7-in. baking dish. Top with half the mascarpone mixture, half the lemon curd and half the whipped cream. Repeat layers. Refrigerate, covered, 6 hours or overnight. To serve, garnish with candied lemon peel as desired.
