I changed it from crepes to a rolled up phyllo dough and it's been a hit whenever I make it! There are lats of things you can use but this is the original. —BMurphy724

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 can Spray butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon amaretto
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  1. Unroll Phyllo dough and spray with the butter spray. Fold 12 pieces in half and then into quarters. (should be about 3 inches by 8 inches long). Spray with butter and set aside until the Ricotta mixture is ready.
  2. In a mixing bowl add Ricotta cheese,1/4 cup sugar,1 teaspoon vanilla and mix together.
  3. Spoon 2 to 3 teaspoons of Ricotta filling onto the Phyllo dough about an inch from the edge.

Just finished making the herb and cheese pie from the Jerusalem cookbook. I had exactly 12 pieces of phyllo left and I cup of ricotta. Used my leftovers to make these. Added a. Little lemon zest and used regular melted butter to brush each phyllo sheet. So yummy! Thanks for the recipe! Perfect!

What a clever idea! Sort of like a crepe, sort of like a cannoli!

Thank you, It was something that came from playing with phyllo dough one day and needed a light dessert! Give it a try!
