"Ok, it's not perfect but it's so close that no one noticed a difference in my tiramisu. Mascarpone costs about four times as much as these ingredients at our local markets. Give it a try if you face the same costs and I doubt you'll have any regrets. The yield is almost 2 lbs. and of course a half recipe is right at a pound. Prep time doesn't include the hour or so needed for ingredients to reach room temp."

"Fabulous in tiramisu and so EASY to make!!"
"Perfect..although not sure what Mascarpone cheese is like..this made my Lemon Tiramisu outstanding..Thanks will used this recipe again.."
"Thank you Thank you! I used this as marscapone cheese is outrageous in expense and I had to make 2 of these for Easter dinner desserts. What a pocketbook saver and tasted fabulous! I used this with Recipe #11180. Wonderful."
"I used this in Tiramisu #84612 and it totally rocked!! Although I've never had Marscapone cheese before, I couldn't believe how good it tasted. It made my Tiramisu very creamy. Thanks for such an easy and cheap substitute for such an expensive marscapone cheese. "
"Living in Greece it's so hard to find a lot of things and marscapone cheese is one of them. I needed some marscapone cheese for recipe Lemon Tiramisu #62692 Searched Zaar and found this recipe. Tried this and it turned fantastic ! really nice and creamy! Thank you TommyGato!"
