I did substitute light sour cream and 1/3 less fat cream cheese and it turned out great! Not as heavy..I soaked my lady fingers in strong coffee and coffee liquor..There are so many variations. Thats what makes it fun...

This is just as good as real marscapone if not better. I use it in a lemon marscapone cake and it is divine! Love it so much. Thank you for the great recipe

Hi Nana Lee; This turned out so tasty and I used it to develop a recipe that turned out super-great. Thank you for sharing this with us. It is in my cookbook to be used in other recipes. "Uncle Bill"
