It was okay. The recipe needs some tweaking. I always make a recipe following the cooks directions first, so I get a feel for the recipe. Just a few small changes will make this recipe a winner in my book!

I love cannoli, so this was a must try for me. After reading the reviews I decided that I wanted to make it work and not be so runny, so I added 4 egg whites to the mix. I also eliminated the almonds (didn't have any) and topped the pie w/ pine nuts. Placed the mixture in a pie crust and baked it @ 350 degrees for about 40-45 mins. until it tested done. I allowed it to cool to room temp. and cut a slice. It held together perfectly and was very good, very rich, but very good. I would make this again. Thanks for posting :)

My son had a project due in school and needed something from his heritage. We decided on the cannoli pie. IT WAS AWESOME!!! I did use the recommendation of other people and i beat the sugar and the ricotta cheese together with a mixer. It did take the lumps out and made for a creamier filling. I did add a bit more sugar though. Not much. I also loaded it with choc chips. We loved it and my son said all his classmates loved it as. Now i'm going to make it for us at home.
