Tips and Tricks On How To Make The Perfect No Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake:

  • The mascarpone and cream cheese should be at room temperature.
  • Don’t replace the mascarpone with cream cheese. The mascarpone has a richer and creamier texture, and that’s what is originally used in Tiramisu cakes. It will make a huge difference in this cake.
  • Don’t over mix or whisk the cheeses on high speed. The mascarpone tends to separate if over mixed, so best to mix on medium speed.
  • I used vanilla wafer cookies for the bottom layer of the cheesecake, you can use graham cracker crumbs as well. Don’t skip the bottom layer. You need it to lay the lady fingers on, otherwise they will be too soggy and create a mess.
  • You can make the cheesecake and serve it/layer it with coffee dipped lady fingers in parfait glasses as individual desserts.
  • Covering the sides of the spring form pan with parchment paper will prevent the cheesecake from sticking to the sides of the pan and preserve its form better upon removal.
  • Chilling the cheesecake enough is very important, if you want to get perfect slices. I recommend chilling for at least 6 hours or better, overnight.
  • The heavy whipping cream should be very cold, straight from the fridge. It would be good to chill the mixing bowl for 10 minutes, before whipping the cream.
  • The coffee mixture can be made stronger or lighter, depends how much coffee flavor you like in your Tiramisu.
  • If you want to have some fun with your No Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake, you can dip the ladyfingers into DaVinci Pinot Grigio wine for an additional layer of flavor.
  • The ladyfingers on the sides of the cake are optional, you can add them to the spring form pan before adding in the cheesecake mixture. Another option is to add them at the end, after the cheesecake has been chilled and removed from the pan. In that case, in order to stick them to the cake you will need to smother a little whipped cream on the bottom half of the lady fingers and stick them to the cake.

Fun Facts About DaVinci Pinot Grigio:

  • Sourced primarily from the Alto-Adige and Trentino districts in the Delle Venezie region.
  • The perfect climate of cool evenings and warm days are key to producing the perfect Pinot Grigio grapes. This gives the wine it’s more acidic and less sweet taste, which pairs better with food.
  • This is an extremely well balanced wine with a bouquet of floral aromas coupled with ripe flavors of fresh apple, citrus and tropical fruit flavors.
  • This refreshing wine pairs amazingly with food and desserts.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 14
Calories: 828 kcal
  • 6 cups vanilla wafers
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
Cheesecake Filling:
  • 24 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 16 oz mascarpone cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar + 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream cold
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Coffee Mixture:
  • 1 1/2 cup warm water
  • 4-6 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 16 ladyfingers
Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream cold
  • 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  1. Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch spring form pan with parchment paper.
  2. Add wafer cookies to a food processor and grind until fine crumbs are formed.
  3. Transfer cookie crumbs to a medium bowl and mix with melted butter until fully combined. Press the mixture onto the bottom of the spring form pan. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Or preheat oven to 325°F and bake the crust for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
Coffee Mixture:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and espresso powder, stir to fully combine.
  2. Dip the ladyfingers into the coffee mixture one at a time, then add to the spring form pan, on top of the crust.
Cheesecake Filling:
  1. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, mix together cream cheese, mascarpone cheese and 1 cup of sugar on medium-low speed until combined. Stop once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Do not mix on high speed or overmix, as the mascarpone cheese can begin to separate.
  2. In a chilled mixing bowl, add the cold heavy whipping cream, remaining two tablespoons of sugar and vanilla extract. Whip on high speed until stiff peaks form. Manually, using a spatula, fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone cream cheese mixture.
  3. Spread the cheesecake filling evenly over the ladyfingers.
Whipped Cream:
  1. Add the cold heavy whipping cream and sugar to a large mixing bowl. Whip on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add whipped cream to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe cream on top of the cheesecake.
  2. Set the cheesecake in the refrigerator to chill and firm, 5-6 hours or better, overnight.
  3. When ready to serve, carefully remove the cheesecake from the spring form pan, discard the parchment paper from the sides and using an offset spatula, smooth the sides, if needed.
  4. Sprinkle a little cocoa powder over the top of the cheesecake, if desired. I like to sprinkle a little espresso powder as well. Always serve chilled.
  5. Slice and serve!
  6. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
