Cannoli Filling

A couple weeks ago I came back from a trip around Europe on my honeymoon, one of the countries we went to was Italy. We went to a few cities in Italy were we had delicious food – the pizza was delicious the pasta was fantastic… But the cannoli was memorable! I thought I had the best cannoli in Boston, until we went to Palermo(Sicily, where the cannoli originates) where I had the most delicious cannoli I’ve ever eaten! Try this recipe for cannoli filling, It’s very good! I’m not sure I can say it beats the flavors of the cannoli we ate at the outdoor caffè in Palmero, but its close! A great tool that can be used to evenly place your cannoli filling is the ISI “Fill It” tool.
