Top Rated Cannoli Recipes

Sicilian Cannolis
Cannoli are pretty essential to Italians, especially during the holidays. They're a must-have along with struffoli at Christmas, grain pies at Easter, and cassata cake and profiteroles on New Year's. They can be large, they can be small, they can be chocolate-dipped, and even chocolate-filled. This recipe, however, is as classic as they come.  My father used to say that my uncle wasn't coordinated because all he did at the bakery was make cannoli cream. It's a big fail for my uncle, but a plus for novice cannoli makers because it's simple!  For a large party, it's best to purchase the shells. They're not hard to find (try your local pastry shop or salumeria) and come in large and mini size. Click here to see A Sweet Tooth's Dream: 8 Fantastic Dessert Recipes.

Holy Cannoli Cupcakes
Oh, do I love cannoli, but the shells can be a huge pain to make. They take so long, they have to be just right, and when they break, it's game over. So one day when my girls and I were baking cupcakes (for Milania to take to school for her birthday), we decided to make a cannoli cupcake. It's really a regular cupcake, filled with cannoli cream, and then topped with a special chocolate frosting. I'm proud of my homemade cupcake recipe for three reasons: There's no vegetable oil in it, it's fairly light (½ cup yogurt and ½ cup butter instead of the traditional 1 cup butter), and you can whip up the batter in a snap in a single bowl. All the dry ingredients get mixed together and then all the wet ones get added in.
