Cinnamon Whipped Cream

As soon as Halloween hits at my house my wife makes sure cinnamon is in the air, if it isn’t cinnamon scented brooms from our local grocery store it’s cinnamon scented pine cones (usually both), or cinnamon candles. The scent of cinnamon has always gone hand and hand with fall and by now the summer heat has hopefully let up where you are and its time for the festivities to begin. Here is a great recipe for cinnamon whipped cream.

Cinnamon Whipped Cream

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 cup Confectioners Sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

This recipes goes great with pumpkin pie coffee, or any type of desserts. Also it’s delicious and a great topping for butternut squash soup, and some fried shallots.

 

 

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.
