    I've made it twice for parties and it's gotten rave reviews. The only thing I changed was to add a bit of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture.

    This is a great 'fake' Tiramisu. The flavors are fabulous. Everyone went for seconds!

    Very mediocre recipe. Tiramisù calls for mascarpone (not cream cheese) and marsala (not rum or brandy); both are essential for its unique flavor. Otherwise, all you've got is a coffee-flavored trifle.

      Ok Giada..go make the real deal! You obviously saw the ingredients before you made it, so you knew it wasn't the real Italian recipe… But likely you didn't even make it before you shot a [filtered] in it. This is a really good "coffee-flavored trifle!" Cook on! Be nice!

    I hope folks who get on their high-horse and make nasty/sarcastic comments are basically making fools of themselves, nothing more. Grow up and get over yourselves.

    I love this recipe. It's easy to follow...when short on time it comes together rather quickly and I've never had even one spoonful leftover when served to guests. It has always been a hit. Thank you Martha!!

    OK, so this isn't a traditional Tiramisu; lighten up. This recipe is reminiscent of, and obviously developed for a quick and still pleasing dessert when time is short. If not to your high standards, move on.

    This is not Tiramisu. This is nothing like Tiramisu. It is an interesting interpretation of perhaps a triffle. Tiramisu needs mascopne, espresso and cream, NOT cream cheese frosting and instant coffee. I am generally impressed with Martha Stewart, but this is a fail.
