Crispy sweet cannoli shells filled with the traditional ricotta cheese filling OR with the traditional Indian Shrikhand for an Indian-Italian fusion dish!!!! —samosastreet

What You'll Need
  • Shells
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup marsala wine
  • oil for frying
  • Filling/Toppings
  • ricotta cheese
  • sugar
  • shrikhand
  1. Shells: Mix all purpose flour, salt, sugar. Add butter by cutting into dry mixture using fork or hand.
  2. Mix in wine. Knead slowly to form a soft dough. Let the dough sit in the refrigerator for 30 min.
  3. Heat oil on a high heat. Divide the dough in equal parts. On a floured surface roll the dough in a thin circle with a rolling pin.
  4. With a cutter, cut out circles in the dough. Remove the extra dough and add it to the unused dough.
  5. Wrap circles around cannoli molds, allowing the ends to overlap and seal together to form the shell.
  6. Fry shells in oil until golden, about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool slightly (1-2 minutes). Using kitchen towel, carefully slide shells from mold and allow to cool.
  8. Assembly: Take cooled cannoli shells and pipe in filling (shrikhand/ricotta cheese). Dip finished cannoli in toppings. Finish with powdered sugar.
