Top Review by vitalev

These were good.. my parents loved them but I was a little less thrilled. They used less ricotta than other recipes I have made and turned out a little drier also. I think 15 minutes was a little too long, so after my first tray I reduced the cooking time to 10 minutes, and those turned out better. Maybe next time I will increase ricotta to 1/2 cup to make them a little more moist or fluffy or something. I liked that the recipe did not make too many, though, it was the perfect size batch.
