"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""
"This is a fantastic recipe! Mascarpone cheese used to be practically unheard of here in Israel. You can get it now, but it's really really expensive. This is a great substitute. I made a tiramisu for dessert this weekend using this cheese instead of mascarpone, and it was heavenly! Thanks, Mox!"
"Thank you for posting this recipe! They don't have this cheese in the store I shop at, and the other store charges an arm and a leg for it. I used it to make a Tarimasu cake and it turned out great thanks to this recipe! :)"
"Excellent! I LOVE mascarpone cheese but it's SO expensive! Used this in a tiramisu and it was excellent! Thanks!"

"This is a fantastic substitute for the "real thing" which is very expensive in Canada too!! The quantity was perfect for making half of my President's Choice Tiramisu as a treat on New Years Eve. Thanx Moxie!"
