I read all the reviews for this recipe before I attempted it... so you'd think I would have learned. I still had the same issues with the mascarpone filling being too runny to spread the brownie batter over top. This puffed up well over the top of my 9x13 pan, and the top is more than done while the bottom is still obviously not done in the middle. The layers by themselves tasted good prior to baking, and I am looking forward to tasting it once it cools. I think this particular recipe needs to be sent back to the TOH test kitchen for some revision. :)
Due to the comments here, we have reviewed this recipe again. Instead of pouring 4 cups of the chocolate batter into the pan, just pour half of it (about 2-1/2 cups). Then spread with the filling and top with the remaining batter.
We apologize for the error and any inconvenience.

I wish I had read these reviews before investing in the ingredients. As others have noted, it is impossible to spread the top layer of brownie batter over the cheese filling. It's a very light textured bar and I'm hoping that when it cools in the fridge it will easily cut into squares, but I think I'm going to serve it with a flavorful ice cream on the side as the flavor is very bland. Big disappointment.
I was not too happy that the filling did NOT puff up as it looks in this picture. It looks so spongy, but it definately did not turn out like this when I made them. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller pan, but it should still cook the same. I cooked this well over the time suggested and it still did not really cook in the middle. I was really looking forward to the Tiramisu quality since the ingredients are high quality/. They taste ok, but not what I expected at all!
The batter was impossible to spread over the filling. They were still very soggy after I baked them for well over the time that they needed to be!
