Tiramisu Cheesecake Dessert
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. + chilling
My second review because I forgot to mention, this cake tasted so much better the next day. 24 hrs in the fridge really improved it!!
its a great recipe
Way too dry for us....I would increase the "brushing" of wafers x2 and reduce bake time by 10 minutes at least.....flavor ok but NOT like it should be due to how dry the whole thing was. The wafers are drier than lady fingers would be so may be that is the problem
The ladyfinger people are thinking of the traditional way of making tiramisu, but I think the vanilla wafers are a good idea since I can't find ladyfingers until around fall time of the year. I think this would be quite delicious but altogether too rich. I made something like it by using ladyfingers dipped in strong perked coffee and an ounce of coffee liqueur, and layered white chocolate diet pudding mixed with cream cheese and Cool whip. Make up the pudding with whole milk (or low fat) then beat the cream cheese and Cool Whip together until you like the texture and add the pudding. It was delicious and nobody knew it was a slimmed down version. I will try the vanilla wafers though.
The recipe doesn't call for ladyfingers, why are so many reviewers talking about making the recipe with ladyfingers?
For those complaining about the texture, please go back and read the title of the recipe. It is not purported to be tiramisu. It is a cheesecake (which would be dense in texture) with the flavors of a tiramisu.
Could not find any Lady fingers at several stores - so thought I would give this a try. I did add 1/4 cup heavy cream based on other comments about the texture and more coffee over the wafers. While I think the dessert turned out fine.. I would not present this as “tiramisu” to my dinner guests. Well the “Coffee Cream Cheese Squares” were enjoyed by all and I have changed my rating to a 4.Thank you
I thought it was very dense. I won't make this again.
Can't believe how yummy it was. Never heard of tiramisu before, now I made and share often ..... Thanks Christie! Meant 5 stars.
Blech! I LOVE tiramisu but have trouble with the raw eggs, so I thought this would be a great choice. NO it was not! Hardly any coffee flavor at all, like eating baked cream cheese. Even my husband had half a piece and pushed back, saying it was too rich, too dense, and not sweet enough. I threw out the rest.
