A Shortcut to Amazing Canolis!
Being Sicilian I grew up eating canolis. They are my favorite dessert. I have had them all over the US and also in Italy. Believe it or not it’s hard to find canoli’s in Italy unless you’re in Sicily. Making them is not hard, other than the shell. Those are tough to do well. So I buy my shells at my local Italian deli/bakery because they are amazing! Also when you make them the traditional way, using ricotta cheese there is a lot of prep time and time allowing the ricotta to setup. So I don’t use ricotta, I use mascarpone and vanilla pudding! That’s right! Watch this video! I learned this from a friend who made this at a dinner party last year and have been in love with the recipe ever since!
What You’ll Need:
8oz mascarpone cheese
4 cups vanilla pudding
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 Italian cookies with sprinkles
1 Italian cookie with chocolate sprinkles
1 disposable piping bag these will make you forget all about the traditional canolis you are used to! I promise!
