Daring Bakers November Challenge: Cannolis


The November 2009 Daring Bakers Challenge was chosen and hosted by Lisa Michele of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drives. She chose the Italian Pastry, Cannolo (Cannoli is plural), using the cookbooks Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich and The Sopranos Family Cookbook by Allen Rucker; recipes by Michelle Scicolone, as ingredient/direction guides. She added her own modifications/changes, so the recipe is not 100% verbatim from either book.

On a full stomach of turkey and cranberry stuff, I managed to fry up some cannolis and convince my equally satiated family members to taste test.

Pumpkin and ginger cannoli wonderful fillings and I'm surprised that you could even eat one of them they are very rich. Cheers from Audax in Australia.
