This was a fantastic and easy recipe! I have always loved tiramisu and was under the mistaken impression that it was difficult to make. Thanks!

Most grocery stores I know carry marscapone, but this may be because I live in a big city. Are you looking in the right place? Most grocery stores seem to place the basic American dairy products (cheddar, cream cheese, American-style ricotta, etc.), in one case, and have the "gourmet" cheeses in another area of the store. You'll probably find the marscapone wherever you'd find the brie, fresh mozarella, etc.
Nevertheless, the best place to buy marscapone is Trader Joe's. My local grocery store (QFC) carries marscapone, but it's almost $5 for an 8oz container. I just bought marscapone at Trader Joe's today and the exact same brand (Bel Giosio) was $2.59.

Hope this helps!

Is it necessary to include rum and expresso in this recipe? I'm not sure if I can get a hold of these ingredients and was wondering if the quality of the tiramisu would be much different if these ingredients were not included.

Espresso is fairly easy to come by, even the canned double shot espresso from Starbucks in most supermarkets should work if you can't get fresh brewed.

As to the rum, rum is probably one of the most produced liquors out there. Should be easy to find many types in a supermarket. Personally when I made this recipe last week I used Godiva Chocolate Liqueur instead of rum. Came out fantastic.

Oh and thank you Mr. Michael Chu for preparing this recipe. It was my first time making Tiramisu and I used your recipe and modified about 3 things of my own and it came out great. My modifications were: Madeleine cookies instead of ladyfingers, fresh brewed starbucks espresso to dip the cookies in, and Godiva Chocolate liqueur. Everything else I followed your recipe for, except I only used the cocoa powder on the top layer, and not in the middle.

Thanks again for the recipe, was quite tasty at the party and everyone loved it.

I had looked up a number of tiramisu recipes before creating my own simplified version.

I could only find expensive marscapone, so instead I used instant vanilla pudding (made with milk, as per instructions) plus a container of whipped cream cheese (stirred into the pudding mixture). Also, since I had coffee liquer, I used that to dip the lady-fingers into. I layered the above ingredients (was out of cocoa) and shaved chocolate on top.

Simple and delicious, but since it wasn't the "official" way, and since my name is "Rammy" (rhymes with Tommy), I called it ti-Rammy-su. ;-)

I subsequently found your wonderful page, with the easier to follow instructions (vs other sites), I will soon try again following a this more traditional recipe.

Hi Michael
Thanks for a cool and practical website!
I find your screen formatting for the recipe card great. I like how the connectors (lines) morf with the window size. However, If I'm going to bring up the recipe card, it's going to be to print out on a 3x5 card (or whatever the larger size is). The only way I can get the recipe card to print with the screen formatting is to screen copy (or window copy), paste into a photo program, crop and print. Printing, select/copy/pasting or select/copy/printing selection from the browser all lose the connectors and print only text.

There is currently a problem with the printing of the recipe card. I am working to fix this problem. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Updated: Aug. 8, 2007 - Thanks to reader Isaac L., the error has been found and corrected. You can now print the recipe cards with the formating intact.

Thank you for this wonderful site.
I found marscapone to be rather expensive here in the Kansas City area
so used the substitute which is cream cheese and whipped cream.
It is difficult blending the cream cheese to obtain a creamy consistency
(ie: to remove the lumps) therefore when you use the marscapone
substitute recipe use the whipped cream cheese product which will blend
more readily with the whipped cream.
Another point, it is easy to introduce too much liquid into the recipe when
you soak the lady fingers in the coffee. A work around may be to sprinkle
the dry coffee granules on the lady fingers, instead of dipping them.

Thanks for your simple yet beautiful Tiramisu recipe! I tried it. Couldn't find the mascarpone cheese though, so I used cream cheese and a little whole milk instead. It turned out just fine. Now my hubby wants more. Never seen him so desiring a dessert. Smile

I made the tiramisu y'day and it was delicious. The only negative was that I bought the wrong kind of lady fingers (too thin) and they got too soggy with the coffee. Thanks for the recipe -- awesome
