    Prepare a Vanilla Tulipe batter (I use a 4-egg amount). Draw the circles according to the size of cannoli you want to serve. After shaping them, allow to cool completely.

    Two luscious fillings:

    Cinnamon-Mascarpone: 1-lb. imported mascarpone, creamed gradually with 3½ ounces granulated sugar. Add 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon, ½ tsp grated nutmeg, and minced zest of 1 lemon or orange, mixing until just incorporated.

    Chocolate: Melt 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate; cool slightly. Cream 1-lb. mascarpone with 3½ granulated sugar. Pour in melted chocolate and stir to combine.

    Assembly: Spoon mixtures into separate piping bags, fitted with a star or ½-inch plain nozzle. Gently pipe filling into both ends of the cannoli, so that it meets at the center. Dust the cannoli with powdered sugar.

    Thanks for the suggestions :)


    I'll be making them this weekend to desert a lasagna. This may be a perfect accompaniment when I make lasagna. The fresh ricotta comes in minimum of four pound containers...so I gotta do something with the left-overs ;)


    thanks,

    Well, I made the cannoli's. They tasted fairly decent, but the consistency was much too thin after I got the ricotta mixed smooth.

    well, try try again :lips:
