Tiramisu dessert can have a magical effect on cheese lovers. If you wish to use mascarpone cheese for this recipe, you can do that by all means. Mascarpone cheese tends to get softer if you beat it too much and doesn’t firm up as desired even if refrigerated. It’s important to keep that in mind if you do plan to use mascarpone cheese to fill the cookie cups. It's not always budget-friendly to buy mascarpone cheese and sometimes you've got to find a similar alternative that works just fine. As a frugal option, you can make your mascarpone cheese at home by combining 8 ounces of full-fat cream cheese with 1/4 cup of heavy cream and two tablespoons of full-fat sour cream. Just make sure that the cream cheese is not stone cold. Allow it to sit at room temperature first. Remember this is just a substitute and the taste may vary slightly compared to the real mascarpone cheese. Although it does taste a lot like mascarpone and will not affect the final taste of your dish.
