Cannolis are a classic recipe of our beautiful Sicily. At my home, they never miss during Christmas holydays. I love them, but finding good Cannolis here in Naples is not that simple, and if you want them with no chocolate layer inside the shell, almost impossible! A while ago, a client of ours brought us Cannolis straight from Palermo. Much to our surprise, he arrived with two different packages: one with the shells and the other with the filling! He actually told us that real Cannolis have no chocolate layer inside the shell: they must be filled-in at the eleventh hour, so that the shells stay crunchy. The chocolate layer only serves as an isolating if they are filled-up ahead.
So, after wandering far and wide to find sheep ricotta cheese from Sicily, I got started and tried making my first cannolis. I followed his advice: I prepared the shells the day before, and I filled them in only in the nick of time, just before serving them. Crunchy shell, creamy stuffing… Only one word: heavenly!
Here you have my Monday morning treat before Christmas. If you wanna try, you need first of all the aluminum mold to make the shells (I used the small ones), as well as Sicily ricotta cheese for the stuffing.
Even here, like with every regional recipe, there is plenty of variants: I tried this one and loved it! Have a good Monday, and enjoy your cooking!
