This recipe makes a really nice cheesecake, however, I agree with the majority of the reviewers in that it didn't taste like tiramisu at all. I put in waaay more kahlua than called for, but it still just tasted like plain cheesecake. A really good plain cheesecake though. I like the addition of the mascarpone to the cream cheese, might do that for other cheesecakes in future. I think it'd be just fine doing 2 pkgs cream cheese (instead of 3) + 1 container mascarpone too, going to try that. The ladyfingers made a really great crust. I had a package of ladyfingers that said 5.3oz and I didn't even use the whole package and it was more than enough crumbs for the crust. I'd also suggest putting the eggs in very last (put the flour first, mix, then eggs) to avoid the tempation to overmix the batter. I also knocked this down to 325F for about 50 minutes, let it cool in the oven, and I still had two small cracks.
