Tiramisu is a very good dessert and easy to make. Unfortunately, the ingredients for Tiramisu in the US are not easy to find and quite expensive. But I have little tricks and the Tiramisu is still very tasty.

Cheat tricks


If I can not find ladyfingers, I take cookies from Stella Dora Margherite and sprinkle some sugar after pouring coffee.


A small cup of mascarpone costs almost $5, if you’re lucky enough to even find mascarpone. To reduce the costs a bit, I have used a little trick. I take half mascarpone half cream cheese. You still have the mascarpone taste and save $5. Some use pudding or cream to replace the mascarpone.
