well. I freaked when I realized i was completing the recipe with raw eggs. googled other tiramisu recipes and discovered, yep - that's how it is made. totally skeeved. BUT the end result is soooo delicious!! I wish we could have finished it the 1st night because I didn't dare keep it more than 1 day (that raw egg thing...) i found little 3oz packages of I think the correct cookies that had 12 cookies per package. i used 2 packages & it fit perfectly in a 9x13x2" pan. that's only 6oz cookies vs. the 12oz called for. i made a 2nd 1/2 batch of the cocoa mixture which gave me just enough. I couldn't find mascarpone...groan...so I used a tub of whipped cream cheese & added some heavy whipping cream until it was smooth & silky. it all worked really well....maybe a bit loose but this was my 1st attempt at such a dessert. i don't like tiramisu because of the coffee, either, so i was happy as all get out to try this! what i would do next time is look up how to cook the egg yolks just enough to be 'safe'. this is delicious, silky, not too sweet, just cocoa-ey enough - nothing is overpowering. made for veggie Swap 5/10. :)
