Tiramisu Cheesecake - Review by Morupe
I served this for Christmas dinner and it was a big hit. The recipe did need more Kaluha as previously mentioned so I used 3 Tbs. in the crust, 6 Tbs. in the cheese mixture. I would use even more - next time I'll use 5 & 10. I used shortbread cookies instead of the lady fingers. Couldn't find the mascarpone cheese so I mixed together 8 oz. of cream cheese with 1/4 c. sour cream & 2 Tbs. heavy cream. The substitutions were necessary and worked just fine. I can't imagine the recipe getting any better. The cheesecake top didn't split but it did brown too much so I mixed up a simple chocolate ganache and poured over the cooled cake. Very attractive served with whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa a dash of cinnamon sitting in a puddle of Kaluha. TIP: For nice clean cuts you can cut your cheesecakes with dental floss. Push down and pull straight out, not up.
With a crust made of ladyfinger crumbs and a filling made with cream cheese, mascarpone, and espresso, this cheesecake combines the flavors of tiramisu with the richness of a New York-style cheesecake.
These decadent cheesecake recipes are all dressed up for winter festivities. Which one will you make first?
This is a no-bake pudding dessert that's so quick and easy to make--everyone loves it. I always keep the ingredients on hand in case I need a quick dessert. It's best if it sits overnight before serving.
Delicious chocolate cake to serve during the holidays. If desired, garnish with whole pecans and chocolate curls
