MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 11, 2012

"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2012

"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."
