I've never had Tiramisu, but you are right. Maybe the flavor would disappear some with the other ingredients.

I've used both cream cheese and mascarpone in tiramisu, and to be honest they tasted the same. I think that the subtleties of the mascarpone are lost when you have the strong flavors of coffee. I would assume the same would go for peanut butter.

I'm all for saving $$$ when it makes sense, and using the real deal when it really makes a difference.

Is my memory wrong, or is marscapone milder in flavor than creme cheese? And if marscapone has any sour notes, could creme' fresh be used instead. It simply tastes like very thick cream. That wouldn't change the flavor of the pie at all, but would make it heavier than using a stabilized, or unstabilized whipped cream. That might not be a bad thing though.

I would expect creme fraiche to have a sour note as it is a form of sour cream.

I can't say I think there's a huge difference in flavor between mascarpone and cream cheese. Mascarpone has a bit softer texture and the flavor is mild enough that it could be sweetened for use in a dessert or made more savory for use as a pasta sauce, with caramelized onions, for example.

So I think it would work fine in the peanut butter pie.

I notice the off taste a bit with diet Pepsi, but none with Diet Coke. I guess I've been drinking it for so long I just don't taste it anymore. I make my wine spritzers and mixed drinks with Diet Ginger Ale and don't taste it there, either.

I do believe we have answered the original question and solved the problem. It's amazing how we can get off subject, answer a question and still go on and on. And after all this, Andy decided not to make the pie at this time anyway.
