Cannoli Cups

I love Cannoli…but I don’t have a lot of luck making Cannoli shells. 🙁

When I came across this recipe…I gave it a try..and YUM..they are amazing 🙂

Ingredients:

To make Cups:

  • 1- pkge. refrigerated Pie Crusts
  • 3 tbsp. coarse Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon

To make Filling:

  • 12 oz. whole milk Ricotta cheese
  • 8 oz. Mascarpone
  • 1/2 cup Confectioners’ Sugar.. plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup mini semi sweet Chocolate Chips

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients for filling except the chocolate chips and mix well with electric mixer until creamy.
  • Chill covered in refrigerator.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • Unroll piecrusts onto a lightly floured surface.. sprinkle each crust with coarse Sugar and Cinnamon.
  • Press Sugar/Cinnamon into crusts.
  • Using a round cookie cutter,..cut out circles and lightly press them inside an ungreased mini muffin or mini cupcake pan to create cup.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and allow cups to cool completely before removing from pan.
  • Remove filling from refrigerator.. put into pastry bag or plastic bag..cut 1 corner off bag.
  • Squeeze a little less than a tablespoon of filling into cooled cannoli cups.
  • Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips… dust with powdered sugar…Enjoy!! 🙂
  • The longer you store…the better chance the shells will get soggy ;(
  • Store in refrigerator.
