This was delicious! The next time I make it, I will use a 10" pan, as I had too much batter to fit the 9", and it took longer than 15 min. to get the whey out of the ricotta. Other than that, I followed it and it was perfect. It really does taste just like a cannoli. Everyone absolutely loved it.
I love cannolis and I love cheesecake and I love this recipe. It was not hard to make and was spectacular at a dinner party we went to. Everyone was loving it. I did use low fat cream cheese, sour cream and ricotta and no one even suspected the switch.
