How to Replace Mascarpone Cheese for Tiramisu
Tiramisu is a creamy, espresso- and liquer-soaked dessert from Italy.

Mascarpone is a creamy Italian sweet cheese that is an ingredient in tiramisu. While there are no 1-to-1 substitutions that give the precise taste and texture to your tiramisu that mascarpone does, you can substitute whipped heavy cream, cream cheese or a combination of the two. No matter which option you use, the recipe will taste slightly different; you might have to tweak these recipes to find something that suits your taste.
