This healthful protein filling can double as a dip for sliced apples. I often make it ahead, so kids can help themselves to an after-school snack. —Dorothy Reinhold, Malibu, California

"This is a fairly healthy recipe that gives you something sweet. I left the filling on the side as well and have used a variety of different things to try with it. Great for an afternoon snack!"

"Didn't really like this. Made it for Fourth of July and no one ate it. People would try it but wouldn't finish one. Ended up throwing most of it away. It might be better with regular cream cheese rather than the ricotta."
