These are never left over. Serving them fresh is important.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These cannoli's are divine! The anise extract mixed with the cinnamon adds wonderful flavor to the creamy mascarpone/ricotta cheese. I bought cannoli's from my favorite Italian restaurant, which made them a breeze to make. These cannoli's will be great on any holiday cookie tray or as a little after-dinner treat. The key is to serve them quickly so the shell stays nice and crisp. The Test Kitchen
