Sicily is a land of generosity and abundance and exoticism – and nowhere is this more apparent than in its desserts and ices. Cannoli might just be the most famous of Sicilian desserts, and illustrate deliciously the marriage of Europe with the Levant. Or perhaps just the Levant – with pistachios, candied fruit and sweetened cheese Cannoli are a bit like a hybrid of kunefe and baklava – sweetmeats for the Sicilian table.
They consist of fried tubular biscuits, filled with sweetened ricotta, candied peel. Chocolate and pistachios. They can be very, very delicious – or sickly sweet, or soggy. To avoid these pitfalls we make our ricotta cream with a little less sugar than some others do, and leave the actual filling to the moment of serving.
ENJOY! This is a delight. I like to serve them with mint tea, or with a fine Marsala.
