Tiramisu Cups with luscious silky hazelnut flavored cream and coffee-soaked ladyfingers with chocolate sauce in mini trifle glasses make a decadent dessert.
What can I substitute for Mascarpone Cheese in Tiramisu?
Replacing mascarpone cheese with cream cheese can work, but it will not have quite the same flavor or texture. Mascarpone has a higher fat content than cream cheese. Whipped low-fat ricotta can be used instead of mascarpone as well, however ricotta is not as rich or smooth.
Can I use soft ladyfingers in tiramisu?
The traditional recipe uses the crisp sweet Italian savoiardi biscuits. If you can't find the biscuits, you can use the soft ladyfingers from the bakery section of your grocery store.
In order to make sure your tiramisu isn't soggy, you'll want to crisp up the sponge cake. To make them crunchy, place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a 180-degree F oven for ten minutes before you soak them with the coffee-hazelnut liquid.
