Cannoli (shell and filling recipes)

That flaky, crisp shell enclosing this decadently creamy, sweet ricotta filling which is dotted with dark chocolate chips is pure bliss! They are dessert done right.

These are seriously dreamy! Perfectly crisp shell and deliciously creamy filling. Just like the ones from Italian bakeries. Step by step photos included for shells.

You will need:

Shell

  • 2 cups (10 oz) all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp (1 oz) unsalted butter, diced into tiny pieces
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) white grape juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar*
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 egg white
  • Vegetable oil , for frying

Filling

  • 15 oz . whole milk ricotta , strained
  • 8 oz Mascarpone (I recommend BelGioioso)
