Cannoli Recipe 

Cannoli Shells
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 10 tablespoons (+2-3 additional tbsp if needed) Marsala wine
- Cannoli forms- get them here:
- egg white for wash

Cannoli Filling
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 32 ounces ricotta cheese (drained)
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Cannoli Shells
1. Combine flour, cinnamon, shortening, salt and sugar in a food processor.  Process until the mixture is like fine sand.
2. Add Marsala through the chute, until the mixture forms a ball.  You may need to use 1-2 additional tablespoons of marsala if the mixture is too dry to come together. 
3. Wrap in plastic wrap and let sit on the counter for 1-2 hours. 
4. Roll out dough with a rolling pin, or run through a pasta maker to make a thin sheet of dough.  Cut out dough with a round cutter approximately 4" in diameter.
5. Wrap dough circles around a cannoli form, and seal edge with a small dab of egg white. 
6. Heat oil to 315F- 325F.  Place cannolis into the hot oil and gently hold in place, turning until golden brown.  
7. Transfer to a piece of paper towel to cool.  
8. Dip ends into chocolate and sprinkles if desired, and set aside to harden. 

Cannoli Filling
1. Whip whipping cream until soft peaks form. 
2. In a small bowl combine sugars and cheese.  Gently fold in whipping cream. 
3. Continue to fold while adding chocolate chips. 
4. Transfer filling to a piping bag and squeeze filling into each end of the cannoli.  
5. Consume within a few hours.
