I've never had the real thing, but always wanted to try them....so I can't give a comparison. However these were AMAZING! SOOOOO simple and absolutely sinful. I couldn't find FF ricotta so had to use part skim ricotta instead. It ended up being 22pts for the batch making the first one 4 pts, but only 7.5 if you wanted to have two lol. I changed servings for two and had no issues that way. This is the kind of dessert I will serve to guests and even at something like a birthday party!...only a day later and already I've made these again. But this time I added a little bit of almond extract and it made them even better!
I was pleasantly surprised by these lower fat cannolis. I used sugar free instant cheesecake pudding mix (because that is what I had on hand) and they were delicious! It is great to have a quick and easy no guilt dessert recipe!
