    I made this recipe as written and did not like the texture of the cream mixture. The ricotta makes it too grainy. Replace the ricotta with yogurt and you have a hit! I also used granulated sugar instead of powdered... I thought the powdered sugar gave it a funny flavor. With the changes to the recipe... my family loved it!

    This was such an easy dessert, but so elegant. I made it exactly as written and we loved it. I will certainly make this again when I want to impress for a special dinner.

    Like the other reviewer, the texture of the ricotta mixture was the biggest problem. My husband didn't like it much when I followed the recipe. For the second try, I used a cream cheese and powdered sugar blend, without the ricotta, and while it was thicker, he liked the flavor better. Also, it's quite important to repeat the layer of cookies. Graham crackers also work well. It might also be nice to drizzle melted chocolate over the strawberries on each layer, to add more depth of flavor!
