1. Combine flour, salt, baking powder, 1 egg, sugar, & butter; mix well.

2. Gradually add enough wine to make a firm dough. Knead until smooth &
elastic. Roll into very thin sheets; cut into 12 squares.

3. Place metal cannoli tubes diagonally onto each square so tube divides
each square into 2 triangles. Lay points of triangles over tubes so they
meet in middle. Separate remaining egg & use a little of the egg white to
moisten overlap. Press gently to seal.

4. Heat 3-4 inches deep olive oil in deep pan. Fry cannoli until golden
brown, drain well on paper towels, & cool. Remove metal tubes.

5. Combine remaining part of egg with ricottta cheese, orange flower water,
candied orange, & chocolate & blend well. Fill cannoli with cheese mixture.
Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.
