I tried making cannolo (cannoli - is this the plural?) at the weekend to try something different for Easter. I failed. They tasted OK but the shape was a disgrace.
If you’ve never seen or eaten them a cannolo is made of crispy fried dough, formed into a tube and stuffed with ricotta into which is mixed lemon juice and grated chocolate. (There may be variations in the filling).
I didn’t have “cannoli tubes” which are vital to getting the shape right. We plan to buy a set, they aren’t expensive.
It’s also possible to buy pre-baked cannoli shells and simply add the filling. Which is a plus because rolling and kneading the dough for cannoli is hard work.
Have you ever made cannoli? Did you have more success than me?
