Been making these for some time now,To be honest always bought my shells. My nephew bought me the cannoli tubes for Christmas so I experimented with a few different recipes and came up with this easy easy shell recipe! Because Im all about easy when it comes to cooking.
1For Shells Mix flour and shortening then add rest shell ingredients with a pinch of salt. Roll thin and cut into 3in squares. Wrap around cannoli tubes overlapping and sealed with egg white. Fry in hot oil til golden brown.
2Filling-Whip ricotta and sugar. Mix in rest of ingredients except whipping cream.
Whip the cream and fold in ricotta mix,
Fill shells and add extras (Choc, nuts etc.)
I put filling in piping bag.
3Decorate as desired. Refridgerate for hour to set before serving.
