Recipe by BKF531

An Italian cream cheese, which is used in many things, especially Tiramisu can be found in many specialty stores as well as many good supermarkets. It usually comes in a flat tub. It is quite expensive, so this is an inexpensive substitute.

Thank you for this! I don't even know where to look for mascarpone cheese in my area and others have said it is very expensive. SO, this was a great substitution to use in recipe#317906. Whipped the cream cheese for about 5 minutes in my KAM and then added the sugar. Thank you again!
