Cannoli Recipe

Wow – it’s been weeks since I said I would post a recipe for the Cannoli Puff Pastries that I made for our Super Bowl Party.  Finally, I’ve decided to share it.

This recipe was so delicious, easy to prepare, easy to assemble and was a crowd pleaser.

I stole this recipe from Pepperidge Farm.  I already had the puff pastry in the freezer so that was a plus.

WHAT YOU NEED – 

  • Muffin pan
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 sheet of frozen Pepperidge Farm puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup of ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup of sugar (I used Splenda)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

COOKING DIRECTIONS – 

  • Spray muffin pan with cooking spray
  • Unfold the puff pastry and cut into 12 squares (I thawed the puff pastry in the microwave for quick thaw!)
  • Press squares into the muffin pan
  • Brush top edges of squares with the beaten egg
  • Bake for 10 minutes until pastries are golden brown
  • Once cool, cut a small slit into the top with a knife.
  • Place ricotta cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon into a medium mixing bowl
  • Whisk until smooth
  • Take a large spoonful of ricotta mixture and place in puff pastry. **Tip: make sure the pastry is still a little warm, this will make it easier to fill in the puff itself!
  • Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips
  • DEVOUR!!!
