 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------------SHELLS-----------------------------------
  • 1 1/2 c Flour
  • 1 tb Sugar
  • pn Salt
  • 1/2 c Dry red wine OR
  • -dry Marsala
  • Oil for frying


1 1/2 c Powdered sugar
2 tb Candied fruit
1/4 c Chocolate chips
1/2 ts Cinnamon
1/4 c Chopped pistachios

Sift together sugar, flour and salt. Work the wine in gradually, kneading
to a soft dough. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness, and
cut out five-inch discs. Wrap each disc around a cannoli form, sealing the
edge with egg white.

Heat oil, five inches deep, in a small, deep saucepan, and fry one at a
time until golden and crisp. Remove with tongs, let oil run off, and drain
on a paper towel. Let the pastry cool slightly, then slip it carefully off
the form.

Note: Shells will keep for a week or two in a sealed container, so they
can be made ahead.

Filling: In a mixing bowl, beat the ricotta with an electric mixter. Add
remaining filling ingredients. Stuff shells just before serving. Sprinkle
with powdered sugar.
