Do you know how hard it is to find mascarpone cheese where I live? It's easier to find a unicorn! I made a batch of tiramisu this past weekend and used this substitute. Served it to some discerning food snobs, and it got a thumbs up from everyone, and a request for seconds. One friend asked me where I had managed to find mascarpone in our culinary dessert. I just sat back and smiled. This will be our secret, Kevin, thanks! Next time I'm going to try it with a lower-fat cream cheese.
i'm lucky that kroger and meijer carry it. we also have an italian deli shop nearby owned by friend from school noless,lol. this is a great substitute in a pinch i've used cool-whip in place of sour cream. mine is called 'drunken tiramisu' i usually make about 6 pans when everyone finds out i'm making they call. sorry for typos--stroke-one finger typing
This was the BEST !!! Everyone loved it and never knew I substituted mascrapone ...Thank you
This will be every helpful! I've been trying to figure out how to make a vegan version and this is perfect for what I'll need to substitute!!! Best recipe I've found yet!
Genius and such a life-saving recipe when the real thing becomes impossible to find! Used it in my cannoli cupcakes and nobody was the wiser. Thank you!
Great sub. Thanks for posting.
Believe me, it's the perfect substitute too! What a great recipe!
I live in a small town but love to cook gourmet desserts! So, in a small town we have the regular ole cheese, so finding this recipe has helped me alot because i really wanted to do this recipe that i found on this website, and i looked up the substitute and is AWESOME! i absolutely love it!!!
This came through in a pinch when I needed Mascarpone for Tiramisu cupcakes. I could eat this all day long. Thank you Kevin.
I've never tasted mascarpone; this worked great in a trifle recipe. I was tempted to make a second batch just to eat :-)
