Cannolli recipe??

Hi! I am looking for a good cannolli recipe. (not sure if I spelled it correctly?) Ever since we started watching "Everybody Loves Raymond" I wanted to try what they are all talking about.

Can anyone help?

Welcome Sunny! I don't have one handy, but I put the word out (via email) to a friend and hopefully I will have it to post very soon. Even if I don't get it to you soon, I know there are some fabulous recipe people who will post one soon.

Sicilian cannoli

Ingredients:
1 pinch salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp butter
150 g flour
dry white wine
250 g fresh ricotta (saputo)
2 tbsp chopped bitter chocolate
1 tsp cocoa
1 tbsp orange essence
crushed pistachio nuts
1 tsp coffee powder
2 tbsp candied orange and citron
almond oil
peanut oil
yolk


Description:
To make the pastry case: Place the flour, cocoa, coffee powder, a pinch of salt and the sugar on a pastry board or work surface and mix. Form a well and work in the smoothed butter and enough wine to make a firm dough. Form a ball wrap in cling film and refrigerate for an hour. Filling:Dice the candied fruit and the chocolate. Sieve the ricotta and then whisk in the icing sugar, the orange essence and then add the candied peel and chocolate dice. Refrigerate. Cannoli case:Roll out the pastry and using a round 9'/18cm pastry cutter, cut 18 disks, kneading the dough each time. Stretch each disk out into an oval, brush with almond oil and roll around the bamboo or tin tubes. Brush with a little egg yolk where they overlap and press down to make them stick properly. Lift the ends of the pastry slightly curling them back - makes them easier to remove. Heat the peanut oil in the frying pan and deep fry the cannoli, two at a time. When they are golden brown remove them and drain on kitchen paper. As soon as they cool enough to be able to hold them in your fingers, remove them from the tubes, oil the tubes again and wrap them in more pastry to fry some more. Assembling: Only fill the cannoli when you are ready to eat them or they go soggy. They keep in a biscuit tin for a few days. Decorate the ends with a little crushed pistachio nut, giving the typical green of so many Sicilian desserts.

Better yet, see if you've got a GOOD authentic italian deli in your area. We have an amazing one that sells all kinds of things like these. Also, the people will share their family recipes with you if you tell them you're interested in learning italian pastry cooking!
