This is one of my favorite Italian desserts and the perfect ending to any Italian dinner. The shells are pretty simple to make, and taste so much better than the ready-made shells you buy in the Italian markets. Note that cooking time also includes chilling time.

Total Time 1 hours 45 minutes

Prep Time 1 hours

Cook Time 45 minutes

Yield 24 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 13

4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, softened
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup white wine
shortening, for frying
4 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup finely chopped maraschino cherry
1/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream, optional

Steps:

  • To make shells, mix flour, sugar and salt in a bowl.
  • Cut in butter.
  • Add egg yolks; stir with a fork.
  • Stir in wine, 1 tablespooon at a time, with a fork until dough clings together.
  • Form a ball with the dough and let stand for 30 minutes.
  • Roll dough almost paper thin, on a well-floured surface.
  • Using the rim of a margarita glass (about 3-4 inches across), make circle imprints into rolled dough.
  • Using a paring knife, make sure circles are cut all the way through.
  • Roll each circle of dough around a metal cannoli tube, overlaping the ends and press to seal, flaring out the edges slightly.
  • Fry one or two at a time in hot melted shortening (about 360°F) for approximately 1 minute, turning to brown all sides.
  • Remove from hot grease and drain on paper towels, seam side down.
  • Let cool a minute or two before trying to remove metal tube.
  • To remove the tube hold cannoli shell down on the paper towel and carefully slide the tube out one end.
  • Leave cannoil shells on paper towel, seam side down to cool completely.
  • ~NOTE~Shells can be stored in airtight containers and made several days prior to filling.
  • For filling, drain ricotta cheese over cheesecloth if ricotta is watery.
  • Combine ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Squeeze Maraschino cherries with paper towels to remove all liquid.
  • (If you don't squeeze them good, you will have a pink water filling!).
  • Stir in cherries and chocolate chips into the ricotta mixture, being careful not to over mix.
  • For a lighter filling, you may whip 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to form stiff peaks, and fold into filling mixture at this step.
  • Chill filling for about 30 minutes before piping into cooled cannoli shells.
  • You may garnish the cannoli by sprinkling powdered sugar on top.
  • Whipped cream, a cherry, and shaved chocolate can also be used to garnish the top.
  • Keep refrigerated until time of serving.

CANNOLI SHELLS AND RICOTTA CREAM FILLING RECIPE - FOOD.CO…



Cannoli Shells and Ricotta Cream Filling Recipe - Food.co… image

Giovanna, our good friend, makes wonderful cannoli shells and ricotta cream-love friends like her! Her family owned Italian restaurants for over 40 years in the Chicago area. She stores the shells in a plastic air tight container at room temperature for 2 months and freezes the filling she is not using immediately and defrosts it in the refrigerator later. As she would say mangiare, mangiare---eat, eat! (I will attempt to post some photos in the correct sequence http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=259809)

Total Time 4 hours

Prep Time 2 hours

Cook Time 2 hours

Yield 44-50 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 17

64 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese, drained
16 ounces powdered sugar, sifted
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 -3 drops cinnamon oil
8 ounces bar milk chocolate candy bars with almonds (at room temperature)
2 eggs, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
11 tablespoons ice water
3 cups flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons Crisco shortening
1 egg white, beaten
3 -4 quarts peanut oil

Steps:

  • Three or more days in advance of making the cannoli shells set the ricotta in a colander inside of a large bowl.
  • Scrape the ricotta into the colander and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Let the ricotta drain in the refrigerator for two days, until it is dry.
  • To make the dough for cannoli shells: In a small bowl put eggs.
  • Beat eggs; add vanilla and ice water to eggs.
  • In a large bowl, use your hands to combine the flour, sugar, salt, cocoa, and cinnamon.
  • Add the shortening and mix until crumbly.
  • Make well in dry mixture and add wet mixture.
  • Using your hands mix together, if it is dry, add more ice water.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and well blended, about 3 minutes.
  • Shape the dough into a flattened ball.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for at least 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Cut the dough into 4 pieces.
  • Starting at the middle setting, run one of the pieces of dough through the rollers of a pasta machine or the dough can be rolled on a board with a rolling pin.
  • Lightly dust the dough with flour as needed to keep the pieces from sticking.
  • Continue to pass the dough through the machine until you reach the last or second to last setting.
  • You might need to run the dough through the pasta machine three times.
  • The dough needs to be thin-about the same thickness as construction paper; cut the dough into 4 1/2 inch circles. (Giovanna’s cannoli tubes are 6 inches long and 1 inch in diameter.).
  • Continue rolling out the remaining dough.
  • If you do not have enough cannoli tubes for all of the dough, lay the pieces of dough on sheets of plastic wrap and keep them covered until you are ready to use them.
  • Put a rack in the bottom of a large heavy kettle that you plan on putting your peanut oil into so that your cannoli shells do not touch the bottom and burn. (Giovanna uses a restaurant kettle that is about 18 inches in diameter.).
  • Pour about 2 inches of oil in a smaller kettle. Giovanna used 4 quarts but her kettle is huge!
  • Heat oil until a deep frying thermometer shows 375 degrees.
  • Oil the cannoli tubes by placing them in the hot oil then draining them in a metal bowl (you need the oil on the tube so that later the cannoli shell will slip off easily).
  • Lay the dough circle flat, center the tube on it, bring left edge onto tube, dab it with egg white, bring up right side of dough circle, dab it with egg white, and roll the tube; do not press the dough. You do not want the dough to be too tight on the tube, or you will have difficulty later getting your cannoli off. Be careful not to stretch the dough or pull it tightly. Avoid, as best as possible, getting egg white on the tube, or the cannoli will stick to it.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Carefully lower a few of the cannoli tubes into the hot oil. Do not crowd the pan.
  • Fry the shells until golden, about 2 minutes, turning them so that they brown evenly.
  • With tongs, remove the cannoli tubes, holding them straight up so that the oil flows back into the pan.
  • Then drain the cannoli still on tube briefly in a metal bowl.
  • While the cannoli shells are still hot, carefully slide the shells off the tubes by grasping each tube with a clean towel and gently twisting the cannoli shell off the tube with your other hand protected by an oven mitt or towel. On another work surface area, lay oilcloth or newspaper, topped with a large rack.
  • When the cannoli shells are barely warm set them on top of the rack.
  • It is important that the shells stay on the racks overnight.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • If you are reusing the cannoli tubes, let them cool before wrapping them in the dough; set aside.
  • The cannoli shells can be made up to 2 months before serving if you drain them properly overnight, and store them in sealed containers in a cool, dry place, but not in a refrigerator.
  • To make the ricotta cream, put the thoroughly dry ricotta in a large mixing bowl with a wire whip and blend until creamy.
  • Add the confectioners’ sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon oil; blend until smooth.
  • Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chocolate pieces. Store the ricotta cream in the refrigerator for 48 hours. After 48 hours, serve and freeze the rest.
  • Frozen ricotta cream can be defrosted in the refrigerator later.
  • To assemble, use a knife to push the ricotta cream into the cannoli shell.
  • Place the cannoli on a serving platter and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.
  • Use within an hour.
