Rated 2 out of 5 by from This recipe looked so good, but I was really disappointed with the blandness of flavor. This recipe looked so good, but I was really disappointed with the blandness of flavor. I used all the ingredients with one change. I used vanilla extract instead of almond extract. Could that have changed the flavor THAT much that it would ruin this recipe and make it bland? I'll check through the other reviews to see if there are any good alternatives to this recipe. If I can't find any good alternatives, then I probably won't be making this recipe again. Although, I will definitely try other cannoli recipes found on Hopefully they are as good as they look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was awesome! This was awesome!!! Everything about it was great! I, being a health freak, thought it was great to see a good, flavorful, low fat recipe. I did add a few extra tablespoons of chocolate chips though, just for a bit of added flavor. One other thing I did was I just spread the graham crackers on the bottom, put the mixture on top, added another layer, etc... All in all- this was fantastic and a definate "make again"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous! fabulous! i did add 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond extract, and just a few more chocolate chips than the recipe calls for. the ricotta mixture soaks into the graham crackers so it tastes like something home-baked and DELICIOUS! its fun to make, too

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck, this is a waste of good ingredients. Yuck, this is a waste of good ingredients. The flavor was bland and the texture was unpleasant. I looked up the recipe for pineapple icebox cake in the original knox cookbook and wow, what a world of difference.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I made this for Thanksgiving. I made this for Thanksgiving. It was not great. No one in the whole group really liked it. I ended up throwing it away after the meal -- and we never throw away dessert. I won't make this one again.
